About Gophers

Since gophers live and spend most of their time underground in tunnels, you may have no idea there are gophers living under your turf.  Often, the presence of gopher holes and mounds is the only indication of gopher presence, so it is important to know how to identify them. Gopher mounds are fan or kidney shaped, which differentiates them from mole hills, which are round. The mounds can be up to a foot tall, and about a foot to two feet in diameter. There will be no surface tunnels connecting the mounds, like with moles.

What is the Damage

Gopher burrow systems can cover anywhere from 200 to 2,000 square feet. Tunnels are roughly a foot below ground, but some chambers can be several feet under ground. Gophers are solitary and generally there is one gopher per system unless mating or raising young, although their can be many systems in one area. Gophers eat plants, shrubs, and trees, eating the roots and succulent parts of plants underground, but also feed above ground very close to their burrow openings, and can sometimes pull up plants and pull them into their burrows.
