Gophers are small furry rodents that live wild across the prairies. Gopher teeth protrude from the mouth and are usually yellow or brown. Groundhog tails are short and covered in thick, bushy fur. One of the more interesting features of pocket gophers is their cheeks. As their name implies, their fur-lined cheeks are used as pockets to hold both food and nesting materials.
Gophers and groundhogs can be found in nearly every province across Canada. Pocket gophers grow to about 15 cm in length and are smaller than groundhogs, which may grow up to 63cm in length.
Gophers can cause a lot of damage to property. They can create tunnels underground, which can damage sidewalks, roads, and other infrastructure. They can also eat crops and plants, which can be costly for farmers and gardeners. In extreme cases, gophers can even burrow into homes and buildings, which can create safety hazards. If you are experiencing a gopher infestation, it’s important to take action right away.
