Utah Gopher Control
Helping You Win the Battle for Your Lawn
Picture it. You spend your weekends maintaining a pristine yard. It’s weeded, watered, and fertilized— and you’re ready for that fresh vase of newly trimmed flowers on the table, or the freshly cut veggies in your salad.
You’ve tended that abundant plot of earth with such care when, over a period of days, everything is laid to waste. Not from rainfall, or drought, or the neighbor kids trampling through the yard, but a single rogue gopher churning up all your work.
Fortunately, you can turn to Guardian Pest & Lawn for gopher control in Utah. As a locally owned and operated company, we understand the habits of pests common to the area and the treatments that will successfully eliminate them.
About Gophers in Utah
The western pocket gopher is a Utah staple we work to keep at bay. Gophers found in Utah feed on a wide variety of vegetation, including plants, shrubs, and trees. Most commonly, they feed on roots and the fleshy portions of plants they encounter while digging.
Just one of these buggers can wreak havoc on your yard and landscaping. While they dig and tunnel and burrow and resurface, they’ll tear through any plants, trees, shrubs, flowers, or produce that stands in their way. While you may be able to clean up those unsightly mounds of dirt, the more serious issue lays underground and out of sight.
The Side Effects of Tunneling
Although occasionally seen feeding near an open burrow, gophers normally remain underground digging their intricate network of tunnels. What people fail to realize is: abandoned gopher tunnels will siphon irrigation water away from your yard. Unbeknownst to you, that interrupted water flow could be pulling moisture from your plants and veggies during an already limited growing season.
Just when you think your gopher problem won’t extend beyond the borders of your yard, you realize they also damage sidewalks, patio pavement, driveways, utility lines, landscaping trim, and drip systems. What seems like an isolated nuisance quickly expands to the other areas of your landscaping.
