WEEKLY GREEN TIP: Save time, money (and hopefully the planet)!
Pocket Gophers make their presence known by building crescent shaped mounds of dirt. They feed on plant and tree roots as they tunnel through the soil. They are active year-round and can have up to three litters a year in well-watered areas. They also gnaw on irrigation lines to divert water into their tunnels, making it difficult to properly water plants. Adults live about three years. Trap them using Macabee or box traps for the best means of control.
