Pest Control for Gophers & Moles Temecula, Fallbrook, Oceanside, and the Surrounding Areas
Living in Temecula, Fallbrook, Oceanside, and surrounding areas, it is not uncommon to see mounds of dirt pop up on your lawn or garden. These mounds are a telltale sign of gophers. Gophers have brown fur and large cheek pouches. These rodents look like rats with large teeth and can move up to 1,000 pounds of dirt per year. As unsightly as it is to see these mounds, what is happening underneath is where the real problem lies. Gophers create a network of tunnels to provide protection and a way for these hoarders to store food. And the damage caused by gophers can be extensive if they burrow under concrete slabs or into water lines. To rid your lawn or garden of these troublesome pests, you need to call a professional, like the team at Knockout Pest Control & Termite.
The expression, “don’t make a mountain out of a molehill,” sheds light on the type of damage these burrowing pests can make on a lawn or garden. Moles are mammals and experts at digging due to their short, powerful forelimbs with oversized paws. Like gophers, the damage a mole can cause may be more extensive than the mounds you see on the surface. A technician from Knockout knows how to distinguish between a mole and gopher and how to control each.
