Mole Control in Riverside, California
Moles are not dangerous to humans, but they can be incredibly dangerous, so to speak, to your beautifully landscaped lawn. While moles don’t tend to live in the southeastern regions of the state, they can be a very real nuisance for home and business owners in the foothills, coastal range mountains, and Sierra Nevada. While you may rarely see a mole, the damage they cause is quite evident. These small mammals forage on a variety of grubs and insects found underground. To forage and live successfully, moles construct interconnecting tunnels just below the surface of the ground. Even though grubs and insects are preferable, moles eat roots and other plant material as well. The ridges that you see in your lawn are the surface feeding burrows of moles. The permanent tunnels of these animals are a bit deeper, at 8 to 12 inches underground. Because moles are considered nongame mammals in California, it is legal to control them by any legal means available to you, including a professional exterminator.

Mole Control Services Offered
One mole may not make a difference
With moles, no one method of control has proven effective. A combination of methods is often necessary for the control of these mammals. When people ask us how to control moles, we let them know we offer the following services:
- Trapping—Trapping is one of the most dependable methods of control currently available. We will set traps that straddle the tunnel so that the mole is none the wiser. While many home and business owners will try to trap moles on their own, they may be unsuccessful. Proper trap placement and set-up
isessential for pest control.
- Repellents—Repellents are typically not effective on their own. Moles will simply dig their way to a new location. When placed properly, however, repellents can steer moles toward pre-set traps.
- Chemical Control—Baits have shown to be effective against moles. Mimicking the moles’ natural food source, these baits are laid in tunnels and foraging burrows. Once consumed, the moles will die in a few days.
- Hardware Cloth—Although a temporary fix, hardware cloth can be buried in front of or around precious plantings. This method is never a sole method of mole
control,but can be used to exclude moles from certain areas.
What Our Customers Are Saying
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!
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!
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. Incredibly reliable, efficient, affordable and always goes beyond the call of duty. Last minute phone calls to handle rodent issues are never a problem - Mike has always been there for us. We highly recommend this company to all.
John came out right away and set multiple gopher traps. He was knowledgeable and thorough, even cleaning up the dirt from the gopher mounds. Looking forward to having these destructive rodents permanently removed!
Great company... Joseph is so thorough. He shows up every month like clock work !! I highly recommend them!
