Ant Control in Riverside, CA

Ants can be a major nuisance pest.  They can enter our homes in masses in just a few hours, targeting our food and water.  If their nests are disturbed outside, some ants, such as fire ants, will aggressively defend it and attack their intruders.

Once inside, ants seem to linger around.  You’ll find them along the ceiling, in the cabinets, in the sink, and in multiple rooms.  Products sold over the counter kill the ants you spray, but fail to eliminate the thousands outside ready to come in.

Hiring Go-Pher The Kill to perform ant control is the first step in ridding your home or business of ants.  We are trained to treat the most important areas and to use the most effective products. Our products and service will help to eliminate the ant colony and keep your home or business ant free. 

Common Ants

Argentine ants may be the most common ant in Southern California. They are small, dark colored, and about 3mm long. They invade our homes and businesses in search of food and water. They commonly “raid” areas overnight and can be found in large numbers in the sink, food cabinets, microwaves, dishwashers, trash cans, and anywhere else food and water is located. Outdoors, these ants get their food from honeydew, produced by soft scales, mealy bugs, and aphids. This liquid excrement contains sugars, and other nutrients. Other ants considered pests in California are; the odorous house ant, pharaoh ant, thief ant, red imported fire ant, velvety tree ant, and red & black harvester ants.

What Our Customers Are Saying

  •   I had a gopher problem that was driving me crazy and I decided to look for a professional to take care of my issue. After looking around and reading reviews I decided to give Go-pher the kill a call and I'm glad I did. They displayed great customer service and answered all my questions regarding their services. Nick came out to my house for the initial call and he was very informative and extremely professional when it came to gopher catching, he set a couple traps and bait and the following day he came back to discover that he caught two gophers in my lawn. I'm very happy with the service and decided to continue using Gopher the kill's monthly service. Thank you Nick.

      We are very pleased with Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control!  Their customer service is beyond excellent!  They are extremely responsive, friendly, skilled, and knowledgeable.  We have an acre, and every kind of pest you can imagine from mice, rats, squirrels, gophers to insects.  We had an issue of rats getting into the attic of our home, and they expertly solved the issue.  They maintain everything under good control, and it is seemless to us.  They send reminder notices regarding their visits, and leave a detailed report of what they did and found.  This is a trusted and reliable company, and would highly recommend their services!

  •   We have been fighting gophers on my property for 2 1/2 years. We have a regular pest control guy that seem to be reducing the population but not illuminating the problem.

    We hired Go-Pher The Kill and the gophers were gone within 24 hours. I can't even believe it. It has now been almost a month since they initially started, they've come back multiple times and have been very thorough.

    They are quick and easy to work it with, their set up was simple. True professionals. If you have gophers hire them!

      The best service I have ever had from a pest company. Go-Pher The Kill is on top of it they have been servicing our home for 4 years and I wanted to take a moment and comment on how AWSOME they are. I send an email and get quick response and prompt service. In the last week they came out quick to get rid of a gopher and again this week for a mouse in my attic. The service from their employer Ryan was tremendous, professional and all around an A+++ for the last many years.

      This is great company. We first contacted them when we had gopher problems. And then ants and spiders and then rodents that got inside the 3rd car garage wrecking havoc on our stuff. They always try to get somebody to get to the house right away. Nic Shafer is the one always going to our house. He always ring the doorbell to let me know he's going to check the bait boxes in our backyard. Sometimes he calls beforehand. When I see him, he always asks me how everything is going and if there are problems and he always go and check and solve these problems if we have them. He's polite and knows how to get rid of these pests. Great job Nic!
