Apply All-Natural Animal Repellents

Zone Protects' bread and butter lies in providing all-natural animal repellents our clients can use to keep rodents from digging tunnels, creating burrows, and causing untold amounts of time-consuming damage.

Remove Their Food & Other Attractants

If you’re starting to notice early signs of gophers, models, or other animals being present on your property — and even if you are not — Zone Protects recommends taking the initiative and implementing proper precautions. Before you ever are in need of a gopher repellent or a mole repellent, you can keep rodents from digging and burrowing by removing any of the food sources that may attract them to your yard. Gophers and models have diets that primarily consist of earthworms, plant and vegetable matter, and seeds — which explains why they would be more drawn to your garden or flower bed. Some of the best ways our Zone Protects experts recommend employing to keep these rodents from coming onto your property is to plant gopher-resistant plants, removing any excess weeds and vegetation, and to limit your watering to one deepw catering each week (to reduce the presence of earthworms). If you follow all of these steps, your property will no longer become a desirable habitat for gophers and moles and you are less likely to have an issue with them!

Limit Their Access to Your Property & Yard

Even if you follow the Zone Protects steps above — utilizing an all-natural gopher repellent or a mole repellent, and removing any resources that can entice these rodents to enter your property — you may still want an extra layer of protection. Much like how a gardener may use a chicken wire fence to protect fruits and vegetables from being eaten by squirrels, rabbits, and deer, Zone Protects recommends doing the same thing. Adding a fence or barrier of sorts around your flowers, garden, or other plants can provide a tremendous amount of protection from rodents if you aren’t able to immediately acquire a gopher repellent or a mole repellent. What’s important to keep in mind, though, is to ensure these barriers are made of sturdy materials, such as sheet metal, and that they are bent at an outward right angle at the bottom; bury the bent section — facing away from the plant itself — below the soil surface. These fences will prevent gophers and moles from getting close to the roots of your plants, and preventing them from tunneling too close.
