Rodent Control in Riverside, California
Rats and mice can be some of the most significant pests we have to deal with. Rats and mice will constantly attempt to co-exist with us in just about every building we live, eat, and work in. Rodents have been known to carry and transmit diseases, damage and destroy our buildings, electrical wires, and water lines through their gnawing. Most people have a greater fear of rats and mice than they do of spiders. This fear can make you, your employees, or customers extremely uncomfortable.
Hiring an exterminator is the first step in solving the problem. At Go-Pher The Kill, we perform rodent control like nobody else. In addition to trapping, baiting, and exclusion, we incorporate video into our service. You will have a live video stream to the areas of activity so you can monitor our progress, and spy on your intruders, even at night! This service also provides our
The Rodent Control Services We Offer Are As Follows
Rodent Bait Stations: When there is evidence of rodent activity limited to the outside of your home, bait stations are a great tool to keep populations down. By reducing the number of rats and mice outside, you reduce the chances of them making their way inside. We will suggest the number of bait stations to be anchored down around your home. Once in place, we will monitor their activity on a regular basis and keep a fresh supply of bait for them to consume.
Exclusion: A great way to help prevent rats and mice from getting into your home is by locating their entry points and blocking their access. Rodents are able to find and squeeze through the smallest cracks. Rats can squeeze through a hole as small as a quarter, and mice can squeeze through a hole as small as a nickel. If the hole is too small, they can usually gnaw their way to a larger opening. By using the proper materials, they can be denied access to your home.
Trapping: If they have already made their way inside or if the infestation is large enough, we will use traps. Traps enable us to physically remove rodents from your home or business. Using bait to kill rodents inside can lead to dead rats or mice left to rot in hard to reach places. You do not want maggots falling from your ceiling. Traps can also act as an indicator to determine if any rodents are still in the area being treated.
Live Video: We will set up cameras in areas likely to capture your pest on camera. You will have access to the feed from your home or

What Our Pest Control Customers Are Saying
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!!!!!
Nick from Go-Pher the Kill has been great. He has been servicing our home for the past 2 years. He is top-notch and provides great service on a monthly basis, and most importantly there aren't any rodents or insects at our home. Keep up the good work!
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!!
Super quick response,came out same day. Took care of a huge ant problem! All around great service, thanks very much Mike.
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 had the front and backyard sprayed for black widows. The tech was knowledgeable, professional and on time. I hope not see anymore creepy crawlers.
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.
