Gopher Removal in Portland


Gophers can cause a lot of damage to fields and yards by burrowing and eating the roots of plants. They can quickly create unsightly mounds of dirt and even destroy crops. It’s important to take steps to remove them as soon as possible. Here are some common pest control methods for removing gophers:

  1. Poison bait: One common pest control method for removing gophers is using poison bait. These baits can be placed in the gopher’s tunnels and will kill them when they consume it. However, this method is not always effective as gophers may avoid the bait or it may harm other animals. We don’t generally recommend using bait as a pest control method unless all other options fail. 
  2. Trapping: The most common pest control method for removing gophers is by trapping them. There are various types of traps available, but the most effective ones are box traps or tunnel traps. These traps work by luring the gopher into the trap and then trapping them. It’s important to check the traps regularly to ensure that any trapped gophers are removed. These “trap checks” will be included in any normal pest control strategy. 
  3. Repellents: There are various types of gopher repellents available on the market, including chemical repellents and electronic repellents. Chemical repellents work by emitting a scent that gophers find unpleasant, while electronic repellents use sound or vibration to deter them. However, these methods are not always effective and may need to be combined with other methods.
  4. Natural predators: Gophers have natural predators, such as snakes, hawks, and owls. Introducing these predators into the area may help to control the gopher population. However, this method may not be practical in all situations and may require professional assistance. 

It’s important to note that removing gophers can be a difficult and time-consuming process. It may require a combination of methods and persistence to completely eradicate them. Additionally, preventing future infestations may require regular monitoring and maintenance. Many pests can be handled without hiring a pest control company, but we recommend not trying to tackle gophers yourself unless you are an experienced trapper.

My shop has had an infestation of rats for over 9 years! I tried traps and occasionally caught a rat but always they came back. On their first visit we discovered two entry points for the rats and plugged them up. After a few rats caught, my shop has returned to normalcy. Thank you Pest Patrol.
