Identifying Gopher Problems On Your Rialto Property
You may not spot gophers while they’re in the midst of causing issues or destruction to your lawn, but you can see evidence of their destruction. There are two major ways to tell that a gopher has taken up residence in your Rialto lawn - damaged vegetation and dirt mounds.
If there seems to be random or sudden damage to your garden and vegetation, a gopher could be the culprit. This is especially true when gophers venture over from someone else’s lawn, and some of your plants seem to disappear or become damaged within days.
Gophers dig tunnels into the ground and usually eat plants from the roots up. Larger plants may have damage near the roots, while small plants completely disappear when gophers pull them into their tunnels.
Along with eating plants from their tunnels, gophers may sometimes forage for vegetation above ground too. You may notice chewing and gnawing in plants and even small trees, where gophers have decided to take a few bites.
In addition to damaged or lost vegetation, another major sign of gophers is dirt mounds. This is usually one of the first signs of a gopher problem, and you may even notice it before damaged vegetation.
When they’re building tunnels, gophers will get rid of the excess soil by letting it pile aboveground. Dirt mounds can vary in shape, with more active mounds looking fan-shaped and older mounds being round or oval-shaped.
The Problems Bed Bugs Can Cause In Your Rialto Home
You may understand the warning signs of a bed bug infestation, but what is it like to live with one, and what kind of health risk do bed bugs pose for Rialto homeowners? Some of the negative side effects of a bed bug infestation can include:
- Experiencing an allergic reaction to the bites: While not everyone has an allergic reaction to bed bug bites, many people do. Most reactions are moderate – there may be an itchy, swollen bite mark left behind that fades after a couple of days. Some people can have more severe, whole-body reactions to bed bug bites and even anaphylaxis in rare cases.
- Developing a secondary skin infection: It’s not as common, but you can develop a secondary skin infection from your bed bug bites, such as ecthyma, impetigo, and lymphangitis.
- Dealing with impacted mental health: Once you know you’ve got a bed bug infestation in your home, many people report higher levels of anxiety and insomnia as they try to get rid of these pests.
If you suspect you have bed bugs, gophers, or some other pest in your Rialto home or business, you should contact Compass Pest Management as soon as possible.
