Gophers on the Go
Gophers also known as moles are hardy critters. There are one hundred different species of gophers but all it takes is one to make you want to pull your hair out. Brezden Pest Control in San Luis Obispo, CA knows all too well the ways' people try to deal with gophers on the go in their backyards. Using their front claws and teeth, gophers dig tunnels and travel along these tunnels around the yard popping up occasionally through a hole, they have dug into the surface of the lawn. These tunnels can be very complex and winding making you think the whole gopher family is having a reunion. However, gophers are usually solitary animals, and frequently it will be a single gopher on the go turning your yard into a maze. Even though, they prefer to use just their own home sweet home tunnel, it is not impossible to have more than one, just each using their own self-made tunnel.
Why not let the animals live in peace with you? Simple, they destroy almost everything. Kiss good-bye to all that money and hours you have put into beautifying your lawn. These eating machines devour shrubs, grass, tree roots and basically, any kind of plant. Don't even think about having a garden or flower bed if you have gophers. It would be like their own personal all you can eat buffet. In addition, the holes they did to the surface are dangerous. Step in one just the right way and an emergency-room visit for a sprained or broken ankle could be in your future.
