Killroy Pest Control Eliminates Gophers and Moles

gophers moles

Gophers and moles can become pests when they invade your lawn and garden causing damage to the grass, landscape, and plants. The first step in gopher control or mole control service is to properly identify the pest in your garden.

The easiest way to identify a gopher in your yard is through the dirt mounds they form. Typical gopher mounds are horseshoe shaped, and pushed to the side of their open hole, which is often plugged with loose soil. Moles, on the other hand, create foraging tunnels closer to the surface, leaving a raised edge. A single gopher will tunnel all over and can create several mounds in a single day, causing considerable damage in a yard or garden. They tend to live in the same area for a long time as long as there is a food source available.

Gopher control and mole control by a licensed Killroy pest management professional depends on the type and location of the infestation but may include baiting, trapping, or the use of a fumigant.

More Gopher and Mole Information

Gophers and moles can become pests when they invade your lawn and garden causing damage to the grass, landscape, and plants. The first step in gopher control or mole control service is to properly identify the pest in your garden.

Pocket gophers are rodents that get their name from their fur-lined cheeks used to store food. The easiest way to identify a gopher in your yard is through the dirt mounds they form. As they dig tunnels they will push loose dirt to the surface. Typical gopher mounds are horseshoe shaped, and pushed to the side of their open hole, which is often plugged with loose soil. A single gopher will tunnel all over and can create several mounds in a single day, causing considerable damage in a yard or garden. They are herbivores, and feed on many garden crops and plants, most commonly feeding on roots of plants as they are burrowing. They tend to live in the same area for a long time as long as there is a food source available.

Moles, on the other hand, are generally meat eaters preferring worms, grubs, and insects as their main food source. Moles create foraging tunnels closer to the surface, leaving a raised edge. Their traveling or excavating tunnels run in straighter lines. Mole tunnels will often be found near edges and root systems. When moles do push up a big dirt mound they are circular and shaped like a volcano. Gopher control and mole control by a licensed Killroy pest management professional depends on the type and location of the infestation but may include baiting, trapping, or the use of a fumigant.
