Gopher Repellent Information



  • Gophers are burrowing rodents  and are well equipped for a digging and tunneling lifestyle
  • Depending on the species, gophers are 6 to 10 inches long
  • For the most part, gophers remain underground in their burrow system
  • Mounds of fresh soil are the best sign of a gopher’s presence
  • Typically mounds are crescent or horseshoe shaped when viewed from above
  • Mole mounds, however, are more circular in profile and they are volcano-shaped
  • The "plugged" burrow opening entrance is located at the perimeter edge of the mound's footprint.

Gopher Problems 

  • Gophers often feed on garden crops, ornamental plants, vines, shrubs and trees
  • A single gopher can inflict considerable damage in a very short time
  • Gophers also gnaw and damage plastic water lines and lawn sprinkler systems
  • Their tunnels can divert and carry off irrigation water, which leads to soil erosion
  • Mounds on lawns interfere with mowing equipment and ruin the aesthetics of well-kept turfgrass


Our Solution to Gophers

These animals have a keen sense of smell and we use their senses against them by creating a barrier in the soil that sends them away. Our all natural repellent is made from all natural, organic ingredients so that your family and pets are safe. Yard Gard Multi-Animal Repellent removes digging critters from your yard safely and effectively without harmful man-made chemicals. See more general information on gophers below.

See Our Test Results!

Like all ground burrowing animals, the gopher must be conditioned (trained) to know that the Yard Gard treated area is unfriendly to his senses (sense of smell and sense of taste).

This often takes time as we learned in our testing process.

Below you will find the results of our test data on a golf course fairway.

The "red-lined boxes" shown below represent the area of the golf course treated with Yard Yard Animal Deterrent.
