Mouse Control in Riverside, CA
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 Riverside 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.
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!

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.
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.
