Pocket Gopher Control, Trapping & Removal Services
We can rid you of Pocket Gopher problems safely and efficiently
A gopher, also known as a pocket gopher, is a small burrowing rodent that is native to several areas in North and Central America. The critters possess cheek pouches to store nuts and vegetation. Gophers don’t hibernate which means they’re potentially an issue throughout the year. Gophers create their homes inside burrows underground that consist of many tunnels. These tunnels can be used for food storage or transportation.
A gopher burrow is identified by the large mound of dirt that sits above the tunnel. If you have discovered a burrow on your Dallas property, you might have a gopher problem.

On average, pocket gophers are small creatures that weigh about half a pound and reach around 7 inches lengthwise. They are mostly brown in color and have typical rodent characteristics like small, beady eyes, tails, and protruding incisors. Gophers also have claws, which are curved and used for digging extensive tunnel systems, while their cheek pouches allow them to hoard food.
Gophers rarely leave their burrows to find food, although they do surface occasionally to eat plant bulbs, nuts, and fruits. The rodents typically prefer roots and pieces of plants that are accessible from underground, targeting crops like beets, turnips, and carrots.
Pocket gophers can live most anywhere soil is soft and easily excavated, and species are found in each region of North America. Even areas with seasonally cold climates support populations of gophers, as they adapt and burrow through snow. Gophers are rarely seen above ground. If sighted outside their tunnels, they are generally seeking food or digging new pathways. They rarely venture more than a few feet from the nearest tunnel entry.
