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 Pest Control Customers Are Saying
This company is the best. If you have gophers and want to get rid of them, give GTK a call. I tried everything on my own with no luck. GTK is on the ball and responsive and effective! Been using them a couple years now, so I know what I'm talking about.
I was very pleased with the service we received from Go-Pher the Kill!! We saw the truck parked at a neighbor's house and called to get a quote. Within 30 minutes, Nic was at our door to check out the backyard and give us a quote. He was very professional and knowledgeable.
We hired him on the spot and He was done setting the traps within an hour. Nic went above and beyond to make our yard look so much better! He filled in holes, removed dirt, and saved as much grass as he could. I really appreciated his expertise on all things Go-Phers and lawns!!!! He came back a week later and the Go-Pher was caught!!!! I've never been so excited to see a dead animal. The follow up customer service was awesome too!! I would highly recommend this company!!! Thanks Nic!!!!!
I have been using this company for the last 7 years to control the rodents at our residence on 2.5 acres. They are extremely professional and proficient in what they do. We really appreciate their service. Mike and Sabas do a fantastic job. Would highly recommend this company
We have had Go-Pher the kill for the past 4+ years. We had a major ant problem and spider problem. They took care of them. I have had ant problems in my house numerous time, I just call them up and they come right out and take care of it for me. They are always willing to got the extra mile.
Sabas R. is very nice and always asks if we have had any problems. He's the best.
I would recommend Go-Pher the Kill to anyone that needs pest control. They are great!!
Nic Shafer with Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control is a gopher's worst nightmare! We contacted this company due to our gopher infestation in our backyard lawn. Our home is perched in the hills above Riverside within the Lake Hills community, so we have a lot of wildlife. This year was an exceptionally active year for gophers and other insects and wildlife due to the abundance of rain during the previous winter. Normally, I wouldn't mind the occasional gophers in previous years. But this summer the abundance of gophers was getting out of control. They were tearing up our lawn right next to our pool which was causing dirt and rocks to be thrown into our pool from the gopher mounds. It was time to call a professional.
The customer service on my initial call was amazing. They sent a technician named Nic almost immediately. I met Nic on his first service day at my home and he was SO friendly, knowledgeable and just a great person. He spent time explaining the tactics they use, which was trapping, baiting and the use of carbon monoxide to penetrate the tunnels.
After 3-4 visits within 30 days our gopher problem vanished. I will continue to use Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control in the future and I would like to commend Nic Shafer for his excellent service and attitude!!!
I am so impressed with the professionalism and the efficiency of this company. Gophers were destroying our yard and within the first week they caught 4. I am so happy with the 30 day guarantee because I have had to call two more times after the initial trapping (gophers like our yard)They showed up when they said they would and took care of business. I HIGHLY recommend them!!!!
I was having problems with spiders and ants! I called and spoke to Mike and he sent a technician named Nic the same day. Nic was here for over an hour taking down webs and servicing my home. He was very friendly and thorough and advised me on what I could expect in the next couple of days. So far I'm happy with the results, I would highly recommend using their service and will be signing up on a ongoing service. Thanks guys you guys are awesome!
This was my second time using GoPher the Kill for my gophers and I'm very satisfied with their service!
First time I believe they caught 3 (set traps, and even used CO2 as the gophers were pretty settled in yards of our new home). This time around they caught 1 and that did the trick. I believe it's been almost a year between these two visits.
Very friendly staff, efficient and thorough. I received a call this morning since my 30 day service (the one service lasts unlimited visits for 30 days) is almost up. I appreciate them trying to come out again and reminding me before my 30 days is up.
These guys are awesome! We had a mole that, despite our best efforts, we could not get rid of. We reached out to Go-Pher, they provided us a fair estimate and scheduled a day to come out. Upon arrival they actual slightly decreased the estimate based on the size of our yard. A few days later, they came back and confirmed they caught the mole! They checked back a week later to make sure we didn't have any other intruders and set some bait to make sure they got everything. What I was most pleased with, however, was the final follow up call we got yesterday. They called to remind us that our 30 day guaranty period was almost over so just wanted to make sure we haven't had any additional problems. Really awesome customer service!!
They caught two gophers in one day. Do not wait to hire them. I tried everything to kill these rodents but was unsuccessful. They came out and set up traps and the next day two were caught. I wasted so much time trying to do it myself that the gophers ended up doing a lot of damage. I'm mad at myself for not calling them earlier.
I'd been dealing with gophers for a very long time. But once they started to get near the house, it was time to get help. I saw the truck with the ugly gopher on it and decided that was the company to use. Nick came out and set traps, returned the next day catching two of those buggers. Nick was very informative and helpful, answered all my exhausting questions. A big thank you.
Excellent company! I just recently completed installing a newly landscaped yard and after a few months of enjoying my yard- it stared to get attacked by gophers.
I tired to deal with the issue myself (of ridding the gophers ) for a couple of months with no luck.
Then Nic came out and noticed the damage, set a few traps for overnight and when he came back the following morning - he was able to catch the 3 gophers that were behind my headaches.
But what really set Nic apart - was after he was done with removing the gophers he took the time to remove the large dirt piles left by the gophers and blend it all back in to the existing landscaping like they were never there. Nic is awesome and will spend the time to give you some insight on gopher habits.
