Gopher Problem

Southwest Riverside County

Gopher problems can range in severity between mild, moderate and severe. In some instances, a gopher inspection is recommended before AmeriGuard Pest Defense can provide a gopher control quote.

In these examples, an ongoing gopher problem had infested this landscaped area for awhile. The nearby fields have been supplying these yards with a constant supply of gophers and combined with the recent rainfall, the irrigated lawn provided the optimum condition for gophers to dig…and dig…and dig some more.

Gopher Service

The severity and location of this particular property made it a perfect candidate for the Rodenator service. The Rodenator service was the recommended method of gopher treatment for the initial gopher service to achieve a quick knockdown of the existing gopher population and to destroy and collapse all existing gopher tunnel systems. Once this service is completed, ongoing maintenance will be necessary to ensure that the population does not grow this large again. Due to the neighboring fields, monthly maintenance is advised.
