Gopher repellents are great for control. Repellent products use ingredients to create unpleasant taste, smell, or touch in the treated area. If they are present, treating will make for less than ideal conditions to tunnel or forage in.

Simply broadcast the repellent over the yard and water them in. This will release the active ingredient into the soil and down to the tunnels. If gophers are already present, apply the repellent in stages. Spread the repellent in bands over a couple of weeks. This will drive them out of the lawn. 

Repellent products work best if they are applied before you ever have a gopher problem. They have to be reapplied often, about every two weeks, depending on the product. They come in granular and liquid formulas. Always read the product label and follow directions carefully.

And it’s that easy with the expert help from Do My Own Pest Control dot com!
