Getting Rid of Gophers

This was a simple solution for me, anyway. I tried everything for 5 months to eradicate gophers in the yard. They were dining on all my newly planted trees, plants, shrubs, etc. and the yard was filled with fresh mounds. Finally, I called a service in my area called The Gopher Patrol and they made one visit, poisoned/gassed all the holes and to this day, 3 1/2 years later, I have never had one problem.


The cost of $100 was well worth it. I probably spent close to that amount on all the DIY methods, not too mention my time and frustration with failure. If I ever have gophers again I will not hesitate to leave it to the professionals.

What was the name of the company you used to get rid of your gophers?

Sadly my experience was the complete opposite. I had a few holes and my neighbor had TONS. I got an exterminator and convinced my neighbor to use their services also, hoping we would get rid of the problem together and not just push gophers back and forth. A month later I had more holes and called the exterminator back.


He was resistant but finally came back and treated once again. I saw absolutely no change and the number of gopher holes kept growing and growing. I just don't trust that the exterminators and their gas are effective; this one sure wasn't :( Don't know what else to do; that's why I came to this site.
