Gophers: Pest Control in Your Yard, Part II

What do gophers actually eat?

Answer:  Bad news, gophers eat plants, roots and anything else you might be trying to grow in your yard.  A gopher will find something it likes, say, grass for instance and burrow under it, eat the roots and then come above ground and eat the actual blade.  A gopher will also seek out a garden.  It will find the garden from under the ground and not only eat the roots, but push the plants up from underground.  If the whole root is gone the plant cannot be saved, but if you are able to get rid of the gopher and then re-plant the plant right away, you may be able to save it.  This often happens with farmers in corn fields especially, although they do not usually replant the corn.
