If you’ve noticed holes or mounds in your lawn or garden, you may have a gopher or vole infestation.
If you’ve noticed gopher mounds on your property that are random, it’s probably a female in search of food. If the gopher mounds are in a straight line, it’s probably a male searching for a female. One gopher can build a tunnel at a rate of 1 foot per 3 minutes. That’s 150 feet of tunnel per day. It would be great if North Payette Irrigation could train them to dig their sprinkler lines.
