> Baiting (a.k.a. poison) is a very effective method in
controlling the ground rodents
(gophers and ground squirrels).
> We probe the tunnel system and strategically place
bait where only the ground rodent will consume. This
method is safe for humans, pets and plants.
> Trapping is a good method in ridding these gophers.
> We set traps deep in the rodent's tunnel system where
pets and children cannot reach. We then monitor and
remove them once captured.
> Complete gopher and ground squirrel control while
offering follow up treatments.
> We successfully remove gophers and ground squirrels
efficiently and completely.

predators, but are not often heard.

that they are much less social than other squirrels.
