Identifying Pocket Gopher Mounds

The entrances can be identified by small piles of loose dirt covering the opening. Their burrows can be found in many areas where the soil is softer and easily tunneled. They will often appear in vegetable gardens, lawns, or farms, as gophers like moist soil.
Some species are considered agricultural pests. The resulting destruction of plant life will then leave the area a stretch of denuded dirt.
