So you have these mounds in your yard, what could they be and why be concerned? Pocket gophers feed on plants in three ways: 1) they feed on roots that they encounter when digging; 2) they may go to the surface, venturing only a body length or so from their tunnel opening to feed on above ground vegetation; and 3) they pull vegetation into their tunnel from below. Pocket gophers eat grasses, shrubs, and trees. They are strict herbivores, and any animal material in their diet appears to result from incidental ingestion. So that means that any bush, tree or even grass is on their menu and who likes replacing and spending money to do it.

  • If you see one mound go after it immediately – it will generally only get worse.
  • Some exclusion is possible, make sure it is deep enough.
  • Some plants may discourage resistance.
  • Some repellents are available.
  • If you can’t handle the problem, call a Pest Management Professional.
