Pocket gophers, also known as simply gophers, are burrowing rodents who are responsible for a number of property issues. They are a close relative of, and often mistaken for, moles. Moles and gophers differ facially, with moles' eyes barely visible while gophers have easily visible eyes. Mole teeth are quite small, whereas gophers' are not, and pocket gophers are most known for their large cheek pouches. Like moles, gopher damage is often subterranean, but that doesn't mean you can't see it. If you are facing gopher damage issues on your Kaw Valley property and require gopher control services, call our office today or leave us more information on our contact form here!
