A gopher is larger than a hamster and has a tail that is shorter than a rat or mouse. They have small ears that don’t stick out from their head and large front teeth.

They have whiskers that help them move around and gauge the width of their tunnels.

Gophers also have keen senses of smell and hearing, but poor eyesight. Gophers rarely leave their tunnels. They spend most of their time underground.

Gophers usually won’t eat daffodils, onion or garlic plants, so you’re safe planting as many of those as you want.

A gopher’s number one enemy are barn owls. A small family of barn owls can eat up to 1000 gophers a year. Encourage barn owls to live in or near your yard by installing owl boxes.
