11 May, 2015


Nothing is more frustrating than having your lawn and garden perfect, after much effort, only to have a mole or gopher move in and destroy all your hard work. If you’re experiencing this frustration you have probably tried every home remedy possible. Perhaps some of our favorite less effective include chewing gum, auto exhaust and even shotgun shells. Let me guess you are smiling but deep down you don’t even think Caddy Shack is funny any more.  Moles and gophers are a pain.  Are you wondering how to get rid of moles or gophers?  Let us introduce you to your new neighbors:

 What’s The Difference Between Moles and Gophers


Gophers eat plant matter and unearthing their tunnels often reveals a cache of roots stripped from nearby plants. They often have a density of 30+ per acre and live in short linear tunnels often only 15 feet long. The main tunnel is easily detected due to a series of mounds in an approximate line. Frequently gophers are found on hillsides with dry rocky soil. Gopher mounds are easily identified by their horseshoe shape containing a round plug about three inches in diameter near the center of the mound.


Moles seem to be the most evasive of home remedy controls. These little devils can each make hundreds of mounds per year and often only 6 are found per acre. They eat worms and traverse extensive tunnel systems containing deep (10-12″) and shallow (4″) tunnels. Their mounds look like little volcanoes and have an uncanny ability to tunnel along any hard landscaping surfaces like sidewalks or lawn edging.
