GOPHERS CONTROL CALGARY
Gophers (Disambiguation) are known for building complex underground tunnel systems. They use their front legs and long teeth to push dirt out of their tunnels and onto the grass above. Males are slightly larger and heavier than females. There are two species of gophers in Calgary. One is Richardson’s Ground Squirrel, and the other is Northern Pocket Gopher. The Northern Pocket Gopher makes large mounds of dirt with no visible hole, and most of the time people get mistaken them for a mole. They are sandy brown to dark chocolate brown and get their name from their fur-lined, external cheek pouches, or pockets they use for carrying food to the nest. They are primarly noctural, and they can do al lot of damage to a garden. They remain active throughout the year.
The Richardson’s Ground Squirrel, commonly called the gopher, prairie gopher, yellow gopher, flicertail or picket pin. Richardson Ground Squirrel digs open tunnel and are often seen during the day, standing on their hind legs peeking over the grass and communication with their high-pitched squeaks. It is buffy yellow in color with light brown tail tinged with black. The ears are small.
Both types of Gophers can be responsible for ruining lawns, killing trees and destroying gardens.
