At the first sign of gophers the best thing to do is take action immediately. Gophers can destroy your garden and lawn in practically no time. They can even cause severe damage to the foundation and underground cables and pipes. The first signs to watch out for include mounds of soil and dirt appearing in your lawn or garden.
Gopher are skilled burrowers. This allows them to circumvent normal physical barriers such as fences and walls. They will most likely enter your property from an adjacent property. Excavation, construction or other changes in the gophers environment will cause them to seek new nesting areas.
