Pocket Gopher Removal
Central Florida is home to a wide variety of nuisance critters that can each exhibit destructive behavior if they manage to infiltrate your property. However, few are more invasive and destructive to residential and commercial landscaping than the gopher.
Gophers, or pocket gophers, can leave a lawn or yard completely destroyed. With their tendency to dig, they can create a system of tunnels that extend up to hundreds of feet underground. To prevent costly repairs and unsightly damage, it’s important to immediately contact the gopher removal experts at Animal Wildlife Trappers as soon as you recognize the signs of a gopher infestation.
4 Signs You Have Gophers
Gophers are nocturnal rodents that resemble chubby rats. While it’s uncommon to see one in action, it’s not hard to notice the damage they leave in their wake. Some telltale signs you have gophers include:
- Horseshoe-shaped mounds in your lawn or garden.
- Barren grass and plants close to a hole or series of holes.
- Dying plants or trees (since gophers eat roots and tubers).
- Antsy or riled up pets.
The Importance of Expert Gopher Removal
As gophers are avid diggers, the potential for them to inflict extensive and expensive damage to your yard, garden, and home is high. In fact, gophers have been known to dig through and destroy underground utility wires, cables, and irrigation pipes. Should you notice one or more of the signs mentioned above, call the gopher removal experts at Animal Wildlife Trappers as soon as possible.

When they feel scared, they may bite as a form of self-defense. Just like other creatures in the Rodentia order, pocket gophers may be rabies carriers and they could bring with them a number of other viruses and diseases too.

We can also employ a number of methods to prevent further infestation and damage to your property.
