This time of year in Lake Oswego gopher removal problems show up all over the place. They can do a lot of damage with large tunnels and killing grass with large dirt mounds. We have been solving gopher problems for many years and can stop the damage before it spreads.
It can be hard for most people to be able to identify the difference between mole damage and gopher damage. Gopher's are much larger that moles so that means that there tunnels and holes will be much larger. When you notice that you have damage on your property we recommend contacting a professional to have the problem solved as as soon as possible. This will help prevent damage from spreading on your property and can make the problem easier to solve.
Gopher removal in Oregon can be very difficult depending on the weather, location, and type of ground you are working with. There are different methods, traps, and other products that are made for gopher control, but the most effective way to solve the problem is through trapping this. The process of trapping gopher's can be frustrating if you do not have experience and it can also allow for a lot more damage. We have been solving gopher problems for years and no job is too big or too small.
Oregon Gopher Control
There are many companies out there that offer gopher control as a service, but some have not had much experience in dealing with Oregon gopher's. In Oregon we have some of the biggest gopher's in the United States. Because of this certain traps will not work or they should be modified to be able to work on larger gophers.
Another extremely common problem is people confusing gopher's and moles. Normally, but not always, gopher's will be found in larger fields or rural areas and moles will be in town. We have done many jobs the other way around, but that is usually the case. Moles are much smaller and make smaller tunnels under the ground. Gopher's can create tunnels that are as big as a soft ball compared to a large mole hole that might be the size of a golf ball.

Identifying Gopher Damage
The first step in solving any animal problem is to identify the nuisance animal that is causing the problem. Gopher dirt mounds usually have the dirt pushed out to on side of the hole compared to a mole that will have a nice round mound on top of the hole. The dirt mounds are the area that the damage is taking place, but it is not always the best location to setup your traps for catching the animal quickly. It is also helps to be able to identify old mounds and new mounds because that can tell you what area they are working. We are able to quickly solve gopher problems and if you have any questions feel free to contact us at any time.
In Oregon you can find mole and gopher damage almost year round. This last year (2013) had a very warm winter which caused a boom in the mole, gopher, and vole population. We are able solve all of these problems and believe that trapping is the best method to removing moles and gophers. If you have a problem it is always best to get it solved as soon as you notice any damage or it may grow to be a large problem.

Lake Oswego is blessed with beautiful landscape and great forest areas, which are a great place for moles to live. When the moles have young they will move around and can end up in your yard or garden. These can be very difficult to trap because they travel around in different areas and always in the main tunnels. This can be a frustrating problem, but we have found ways to handle all these problems. We have seen many people try and use noise making devices and cheap poison to try and solve mole problems. These are not effective ways to solve a problem or stay on top of a mole problem.

Commercial Mole and Gopher Control
There are a few methods of controlling moles and gophers, but the most effective by far is trapping and removing them. It is important to properly remove gophers and moles from farm fields before planting crops because they can damage the crops. Gopher's cause much more damage than moles because they will actually eat the plants and roots. But moles can uproot and kill plants without even meaning too. They can cause much more damage in fields because the soft soil makes it easy to tunnel all over.

Do you have large dirt mounds and softball sized holes throughout your yard or field? Have you tried buying traps yourself or using sonic spikes to solve your problem?

There are so many other cheap options out there that "promise" to solve your problem quickly. Like most things that promise the world for a low price, the simply do not work. Below are the common alternatives to having a professional solve your gopher problem:
Mole and Gopher Trapping Alternatives (that do not work)!
Mole and Gopher Sonic Spikes:
We find these in so many yards it is very difficult to count. Over the years of handling gopher and mole problems in Oregon I have never heard a successful story about the use of sonic Spikes. Because of this we do not recommend using these at all to control or even prevent damage in your yard or property.
Mole and Gopher Poison:
The most common alternative to using trapping as a method to remove gophers or moles is poison. We are strongly against using poison because of the possible risk they can present on non target animals. Once a mole or gopher is killed from the poison it is possible that another animal (dog, cat, coyote, etc..) could dig it up or find it. Although rare if they find it and eat it they could possible be effected by the poison inside the gopher or mole.
