gopher control for farmers

Gophers cause damage for all property owners with their destructive behaviors and burrowing tendencies. But these behaviors pose particular danger to farmers. If you have invested in a farm or garden and depend on the health of those crops and the stability of that property for income, you will want to ensure that your gopher control measures are in place from the get-go.

When it comes to gardens and farms, there are many dangers posed by gophers Just like any other property, farms and commercial gardens are subject to the dangers of gopher tunnels because they pose safety issues. Gopher tunnels cause the ground above them to become very structurally unsound and unstable, making them very dangers to walk on. This is particularly dangerous on a farm that may have large machinery passing over this unstable ground. Ground under which a gopher has tunneled is very thin and unsafe, which can be very dangerous for the person driving the tractor, for example. But the dangerous of gophers for on a farm do not stop there. Because gopher tunnels make the ground unstable, this poses a serious danger for the people who work on the farm and the livestock. Unstable ground, holes and tunnels are of particular hazard to livestock such as cows and horses, because if these animals fall as a result of the dangerous ground they can break a leg (or multiple legs). When this happens, more often than not the animal will have to be put down. No one wants to have to say goodbye to an animal, whether it's a pet or a work animal, so always ensure you take proper gopher control measures.

Uncontrolled gophers also cause other problems to farmers that can lead to hassle, wated time and loss of income potential. Because gophers are vegetarians, they are voracious vegetable and fruit eaters. Pair that with their amazing ability to tunnel through the ground and you have a recipe for disaster. Uncontrolled gophers can eat the root systems of plants and vegetables, effectively destroying the crop. Gophers can very effectively wipe out entire crops, causing the loss of income. The situation can be made even worse by the fact that gophers also feed on surface vegetation so, even if the roots stay intact they can eat the plants you were planning to sell and wipe our your crop in a very short period of time. Gopher control is the only way to prevent this widespread destruction from happening.

The best way to get control of gophers before they can cause devastating damage to your farm is to call gopher exterminators. Wheelers Pest Control can help you to get control of your gopher situation before it comes a real problem. Remember that gophers are not going to go away on their own. Without proper pest control the problem will only get worse. Nip the problem in the bud as soon as it becomes an issue and you'll give yourself the best chance of protecting your crop, your livestock, your equipment and your family.
