Mouse Control in Temecula, CA

Mouse hiding from us behind a bbq. We see you!
Mice are small rodents that have large ears for their size.  They also have small, black eyes and have bodies that are typically gray or light brown in color. These small pests are 4 to 7 inches long, 2 to 4 inches high, and have a weight of less than an ounce.

Mice are occasionally seen during the day although they tend to shy away from bright lights.  They are most active at night and can thrive in a variety of locations.  This includes homes, commercial buildings, agricultural land, and open fields.

Since mice are so small, they can gain entry into Temecula  CA,  homes and buildings much easier than rats.  As a result, an infestation of mice is over 15 times more likely than an infestation of rats.  Some of the first signs of active mice around your property include mouse droppings, tracks, and marks from gnawing. They also create nests by shredding paper and placing them in a discrete location.

Mice have no specific food that they eat and have no problem eating food that is meant for you, your pets, or your livestock.  Surprisingly, these small unwanted pests can do a considerable amount of damage to your property and the buildings that reside on it.  They can cause illness by transmitting pathogens that cause diseases such as food poisoning.

Mouse Control Services Offered
Since mice are capable of fitting through extremely small openings in your foundation, walls, and floors, they can be very difficult to get rid of. These unwanted pests pose a threat to you and your family due to the diseases they can carry and the destruction they can cause.

The most efficient rodent control and mouse extermination methods are those administered by a specialist.  Specialists understand rodent behaviors and know exactly how to get rid of mice.  These methods may include:

Trapping — Trapping is good for a small infestation of mice. These devices may include snap traps, and glue boards.  Snap traps are time-consuming but effective while glue boards allow the mice to stick to the paper so they can no longer travel.
Baits — Anticoagulant & other rodenticides are combined with an attractive food to aid in pest control. They slowly administer toxins that will remove blood clotting, damage capillaries, and cause internal bleeding that is fatal.  The poison is administered in low levels so the mice do not avoid the bait.
After your mouse infestation is under control, be sure to eliminate open food sources and discrete shelter areas to reduce the risk of attracting any other unwanted pests.

CALL (951) 977-8183 NOW TO SCHEDULE A FREE MOUSE CONTROL EVALUATION TODAY!
Mice are very intelligent creatures that have complex levels of communication.  They also have facial expressions to communicate their mood to others.  It may be hard to believe, but these keen explorers are actually tidy animals.  They create specific areas for eating, shelter, and using the “bathroom.”

Although tidy and clean, you should not cohabitate with these unwanted pests because they can be harmful to your health.  If you begin to notice signs of a mouse infestation, pick up the phone and make an appointment for your rodent control service today!

Learn More: Go-Pher The Kill Trapping, Baiting, and Fumigation

If you are having problems with gophers on your property, let Go-Pher The Kill help you save your yard! We specialize in gopher control through baiting, trapping, or fumigation, providing service in Riverside, Corona, Norco, Eastvale, and surrounding areas.

Gopher Trapping

We believe that trapping is the best method of gopher control. Go-Pher The Kill technicians are trained in the art of trapping and have a proven record of success. Our Gopher Trapping Program is customized to you:

  1. We first inspect your property to develop a plan to systematically eliminate your gophers.
  2. We carefully dig holes and set the traps, so as to not damage your lawn or landscape any more than the gophers already have!
  3. We let the traps sit for 12 to 48 hours, then return to remove the captured gophers.
  4. We carefully replace the grass we cut out, fill all the holes we dug, and level off or remove dirt mounds the gophers built. (Mounds located in the grass will be removed so the grass beneath will have a chance to regrow.) In most cases, your yard will look better after just one trapping session with us.
  5. After trapping, we prefer to leave bait in the tunnels as an additional control measure. However, we understand that some customers prefer that no baits be used, so we will omit this step at your request.

 

Why do Gophers Make Mounds in My Yard?

… and other common questions about gophers

Gophers live underground and feed mainly on the roots of plants. They move from root to root by tunneling through the dirt. Eventually, though, the dirt builds up in the tunnels, so the Gophers start digging upward to the surface to get rid of the dirt. 

How long can gopher tunnels get?

A gopher’s tunnel system can be very extensive.  It consists of the main tunnel, which is usually 6 to 8 inches below ground, and numerous cross tunnels that lead to the surface – where they make the mound. The Gophers also dig separate chambers to store their food and raise their young. The main tunnel can be as long as 200 yards, and the chambers as deep as 6 feet!

Why do gophers have such large teeth?

The gopher’s powerful front legs and long pick-like claws create the perfect tunneling tool. But, they will sometimes hit a pipe, utility cable, or other large objects that they can’t dig around, so they use their large teeth (incisors) instead. The pocket gopher’s incisors never stop growing, so they have to use them regularly to keep them controlled. 

If there are a lot of mounds in my yard, does it mean there are a lot of gophers?

Probably not. Gophers are very territorial and usually live alone in a tunnel system – except during breeding season and when a new litter is born. There can be up to 10 baby gophers in a litter, and a female can have up to 3 litters a year in irrigated areas. Young gophers will stay with their mothers for about 2 months, then leave to start their own tunnel system. They can start their own families when they are a year old and live for about 3 years. 

I’ve seen some small wild animals in my neighborhood; are these gophers?

Gophers spend most of their lives underground, so you are more likely to see their mounds than to see the Gophers themselves. But, you may see them poking their heads above ground when clearing their tunnels of dirt. Gophers are usually about 6 to 9 inches long with tawny brown fur and short tails, but their large teeth are the most obvious way to identify them. Gophers have poor eyesight but an excellent sense of smell – but if you see an animal of this description running backward very fast – it is likely a gopher!

Besides the mounds that ruin my landscape, what problems do gophers cause?

By gnawing and eating of plant roots, the Gophers not only weaken the foliage, they can kill trees, shrubs, and other plants. They also dig at and chew on utility and irrigation lines that get in their way, destroying these. Additionally, the holes they burrow to the surface, and the ground that is weakened by their tunneling can cause falls by an injury to people and animals. And, if you have a dog, those holes will likely be dug even further as it tries to get at that underground pest!

Gopher Bait

To provide the most effective baiting solution, Go-pher the Kill utilizes a variety of different baits at different stages of the gopher control program. By offering gophers a variety of “flavors,” we greatly increase the probability of consumption. For our gopher baiting program:

  1. We apply the bait directly into the gopher’s tunnel with a probe that releases it underground. The bait can stay active for up to 60 days in ideal environmental conditions.
  2. We do not bait on the surface where pets or children could gain access, because gophers live their entire lives underground. Even after eating the bait, they tend to stay in their tunnels – we have never found a dead gopher on the surface after treating a property with bait.
  3. Bait, by itself, can control gophers quickly if they eat it right away. However, we recommend that bait be used, instead, as a follow-up control to our gopher trapping service – which provides a nice one-two punch for quick control.
  4. As a final step, we level off any gopher mounds built in dirt, and remove those located in grassy areas.

Gopher Tunnel Fumigation

Where appropriate, Go-Pher the Kill can use tunnel fumigation to rid your property of gophers:

  1. We use a machine that pushes heated smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) from a natural “smoke oil” into the gopher’s tunnel, essentially suffocating any other gophers that may be in there.
  2. This process is not applicable for every property, but it is highly effective in the right situations. Ask your Go-Pher the Kill technician if it is an option for your property.
  3. Because no traps, baits, or poison are used, tunnel fumigation is the truest “pet safe” method.
  4. Finally, we level off any gopher mounds built in dirt, and remove those located in grassy areas.

We clean up the gopher mounds after all of our services, not only to leave your property looking its best, but also so that we will quickly know if there is new activity the next time we come out.

We also offer customized, ongoing gopher control service agreements to fit your needs where continuing management is required. Click here to learn more about ground squirrel control in Riverside, California.
