Some of the most common signs of a gopher infestation include:
- Unexplained piles of dirt in your yard
- Holes in your lawn or garden
- Missing fruits, vegetables, roots, leaves, or stems from your garden
- Unusual pet behavior such as persistent digging

Gophers are herbivores, which makes a beautiful garden the ideal home for one.
They feed on a variety of vegetation, including:
Because gophers have very poor vision, they rely on their sense of smell to find food. Most of the time, they feed on roots that they come across while digging their underground tunnels, but they are also known to feed on plants and other vegetation while above ground.
Why You Need to Get Rid of Gophers from Your Yard
While gophers aren’t typically a dangerous pest, they can cause a massive amount of damage to your yard. These rodents are known for burrowing and building tunnels that can extend across your entire yard, and then some.
