Dogs, cats, coyotes, egrets, and other predators often hunt gophers- some with much more success than others!

Care must be taken when doing gopher control around your pets but with some knowledge and a few precautions, it can be done safely.

Notice that gopher mounds can vary dramatically in how much soil is pushed up to the surface but that the hole is always plugged once the gopher has finished using it.


The finely pilled texture of the soil indicates very recent gopher activity.
