Tick Control in Riverside, CA

Ticks are extremely small, insect-like pests that are most often found in naturally vegetated areas.  They feed by attaching themselves to humans and animals where they sink their mouthparts into the skin and begin sucking their blood for several days.

There are over 45 species of ticks that have been found in the state of California, however, only 6 different species are known to bite and prey on humans. A tick problem must be dealt with in a fast and efficient manner. They often carry around viruses and bacteria that can be transmitted to another person while the tick is attached to the skin and feeding.

Ticks in Riverside Ca, can carry around serious diseases such as Lyme disease.  Early signs of this inflammatory disease include headache, fever, chills, and a rash.  More advanced signs include arthritis, cardiac disorders, and neurological disorders.

Many people do not know how to get rid of ticks since they are so small in size and cannot always be easily seen. A tick control specialist is needed for successful tick removal and premium pest control.

Pest Control Tips for Tick Reduction

Reducing the number of ticks on your property will reduce the risk of getting bit by one.  There are several different ways you can reduce the amount of ticks on your property.  Some of these include, but are not limited to:

  • Clear brush and tall grass from around your home.
  • Keep your grass short by mowing it frequently and edging your lawn with each cut.
  • Consider putting up a fence to discourage unwelcome animals from entering your yard.
  • Keep your deck, patio, or play equipment away from trees and the edge of yards.
  • Remove all leaf litter and keep wood stacked neatly in a dry area.
  • Remove all trash or old furniture from the yard to reduce the places that ticks can hide.

Tick Control Services Offered

Ticks have four stages of life.  These stages include the egg stage, 3 parasitic stages, 2 immature stages, and the adult stage.  In California, Lyme disease is transmitted in the immature stage of nymph and the adult stage of ticks.  People are at the highest risk during the months of April through July.  They seek hosts while the temperatures remain a little cooler as extremely hot weather makes them susceptible for drying out.

Pesticides for ticks, also known as acaricides, can greatly reduce the number of ticks on your property.  Small amounts of pesticides must be applied at certain times of the year, so a tick control specialist is required for proper tick removal.  Typically, a pest control expert will spray once in May or the beginning of June and once more in the month of October.

      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!!!!!

      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.
