Scientific Information about gophers:

Pocket gophers are burrowing rodents of the family Geomyidae.

These are the "true" gophers,  though several ground squirrels of the family Sciuridae are often called gophers also. The name "Pocket Gopher" on its own may be used to refer to any of a number of subspecies of the family. Gopher control and elimination is affective for these types of gophers.
 
Distribution
Pocket Gophers are widely distributed in North America, extending into Central America
 
Appearance
Gophers are heavily built, and most are moderately large, weighing a few hundred grams. A few species reach weights approaching 1 kg. Most gophers have brown fur which often closely matches the color of the soil in which they live. Their most characteristic feature is their large cheek pouches, from which the word "pocket" in their name derives. These pouches are fur-lined, and can be turned inside out. They extend from the side of the mouth well back onto the shoulders. They have small eyes and a short, hairy tail which they use to feel around tunnels when they walk backwards. 
Behavior
All pocket gophers are burrowers. They are larder hoarders, and their cheek pouches are used for transporting food back to their burrows. Gophers can collect large hoards. Their presence is unambiguously announced by the appearance of mounds of fresh dirt about 20 cm in diameter. These mounds will often appear in vegetable gardens, lawns, or farms, as gophers like moist soil. They also enjoy feeding on vegetables. For this reason, some species are considered agricultural pests. They may also damage trees in forests. Although they will attempt to flee when threatened, they may attack other animals, including cats, and can inflict serious bites with their long, sharp teeth.
