Ground Squirrel Removal in Riverside
Ground squirrels cause substantial damage to landscaped areas and structures. They live in large colonies which can reach up to 20+ squirrels. They feed on food bearing and ornamental plants and can destroy gardens. Their holes measure around 41/2 inches in diameter and are left open. If you cover a burrow entrance with dirt it will usually be open again the next day. You will usually find more than one entrance leading to the same burrow. Squirrels use these entrances to flee from predators. Tunnel entrances tend to be found next to solid objects, such as a home foundation, wall, sidewalk, large rock, or a tree. Squirrels remove so much dirt that the integrity of any structure over the tunnel can be affected and may need costly repairs. Although squirrels are cute, they are susceptible to the plague and other diseases. They are wild animals which carry fleas, and the fleas can transmit the diseases to humans. It is best not to handle them without the proper protective equipment.
Squirrels are active during the day and spend time eating plants or gathering seeds, grains, or nuts. Their fur is a greyish brown with small white spots along its back, head, and shoulders. They are usually about 9 to 11 inches long and have a semi-bushy tail.
The Ground Squirrel Control Services We Offer Are As Follows
Squirrel Bait Stations: When you are located in an area susceptible to an endless supply of ground squirrels, like a large field, bait stations are a great choice for
Squirrel Trapping: Typically, the first method we use to eliminate a heavy population of ground squirrels is trapping. Both our live squirrel traps and our kill squirrel traps can catch numerous squirrels (or even entire colonies) in just a few days. This method knocks the population down quickly and can be followed with bait stations to maintain
Tunnel Fumigation System™: In areas where we have access to all the burrow entrances we can use our Tunnel Fumigation System™ to eliminate them. This method uses a combination of carbon monoxide and a non-toxic additive that quickly fills the tunnel. After eliminating the ground squirrels, the gas will eventually dissipate without leaving any poison or bait behind.
Exclusion: In some cases, exclusion methods can be used to deny ground squirrels access to a particular area. Because ground squirrels can dig under and climb over objects, this may not always be a permanent solution for ground squirrel control.

What Our Pest Control Customers Are Saying
Great service. We've been fighting the gophers for the last couple years with no luck. Called Go-Pher The Killer and they took care of the problem. We didn't even have to be home. 3 gophers were caught overnight with no sweat off my back. Great company
Highly recommend! Nic was so helpful and knowledgeable when it came to our specific situation. He answered all our questions and was very thorough. He showed us each step in the process of catching and removing the gophers and how to recognize new activity. These guys know what they're doing. Thank you Nic!
Go-Pher is awesome! You won't be disappointed with this company. I had a gopher problem on my property, which is a little over 1/4 acre, and Nic came out and set about 8 traps. He came by the following week and removed what he had caught, then baited the holes as a final barrier against future gophers. Nic was great! He was on time, very knowledgeable, and was in and out in less than an hour. Thanks Nic.
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.
I highly recommend this company for any type of pest control. They are professional, clean and always friendly. My house had issues with rodents, spiders, ants...when we bought it and these guys have kept ALL of them away for years now. If I do see a spider, I can just call and they'll come back out!

We have not had a single issue with gophers or any rodents of any kind for that matter since we have had the service. They are very knowledgeable, professional, and super friendly.
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!
I have been using this company since I moved to Riverside 3 years ago and I'm very happy with them. Gophers were invading our property and they got rid of them very quickly. Anytime there is new activity, Mike is just a call away. He responds promptly and is very efficient. I would definitely recommend them!
Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control is the only company we call to handle our pest issues. Mike is always willing to handle any job we throw his way.
