Vole Control in Riverside, California
Voles, also called meadow mice, are typically gray or brown in color and are pretty compact rodents. They have short tails, compressed legs, and stocky bodies. They flaunt eyes that are extremely small and have ears that are partially hidden. They have a layer of underfur that is generally dense and covered with longer, thicker guard hairs.
Voles do not have set times that they are active so they can be found scurrying about all year round in the day or night. Voles dig many shallow burrows and make underground nests that are comprised of leaves, grass, and stems. They have no problem burrowing through
Although vole numbers fluctuate from year to year, their populations often increase unexpectedly and rapidly. This is often when wildlife control services are needed. Not many homeowners know how to get rid of voles and require trained specialists.
Vole Control Services Offered
Voles are extremely poor climbers and do not usually enter homes. However, vole control is often needed for the exterior of the property. This is primarily due to the amount of damage a vole can cause.
Voles feed on a wide range of garden plants. Some of these include carrots, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, spinach, Brussel sprouts, tomatoes, and turnips. They also damage landscape plantings such as lilies. These unwanted pests will gnaw the bark of fruit trees and damage tree trunks. This damage will disrupt the flow of nutrients and water to the trees and can kill them altogether.
For these reasons, wildlife control services are needed to protect and maintain the vegetation and plants that reside on your property. Trained specialists understand vole behavior and know how to get rid of voles. Some of the most common vole control practices include:
- Baiting — Toxic baits can be the fastest and most practical way to get rid of a vole infestation over a large area. Anticoagulants interfere with the blood-clotting mechanisms inside the body and essentially cause them to bleed to death.
- Trapping — Trapping is effective when vole control is needed in a small area. Trap placement is vital since voles do not like to stray.
- Exclusion — Wire mesh fences are often used to keep voles completely out of gardens. It is recommended that they be placed 3-5 inches in the ground and stand as high as 12-18 inches above the ground.
- Habitat Modification — A wildlife control specialist may recommend that you modify your property to make it less attractive for voles. This may include getting rid of weeds and heavy mulch.

What Our Customers Are Saying
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!
I had a gopher problem that was driving me crazy and I decided to look for a professional to take care of my issue. After looking around and reading reviews I decided to give Go-pher the kill a call and I'm glad I did. They displayed great customer service and answered all my questions regarding their services. Nick came out to my house for the initial call and he was very informative and extremely professional when it came to gopher catching, he set a couple traps and bait and the following day he came back to discover that he caught two gophers in my lawn. I'm very happy with the service and decided to continue using Gopher the kill's monthly service. Thank you Nick.

We are very pleased with Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control! Their customer service is beyond excellent! They are extremely responsive, friendly, skilled, and knowledgeable. We have an acre, and every kind of pest you can imagine from mice, rats, squirrels, gophers to insects. We had an issue of rats getting into the attic of our home, and they expertly solved the issue. They maintain everything under good control, and it is seemless to us. They send reminder notices regarding their visits, and leave a detailed report of what they did and found. This is a trusted and reliable company, and would highly recommend their services!
We have been fighting gophers on my property for 2 1/2 years. We have a regular pest control guy that seem to be reducing the population but not illuminating the problem.
We hired Go-Pher The Kill and the gophers were gone within 24 hours. I can't even believe it. It has now been almost a month since they initially started, they've come back multiple times and have been very thorough.
They are quick and easy to work it with, their set up was simple. True professionals. If you have gophers hire them!
The best service I have ever had from a pest company. Go-Pher The Kill is on top of it they have been servicing our home for 4 years and I wanted to take a moment and comment on how AWSOME they are. I send an email and get quick response and prompt service. In the last week they came out quick to get rid of a gopher and again this week for a mouse in my attic. The service from their employer Ryan was tremendous, professional and all around an A+++ for the last many years.
This is great company. We first contacted them when we had gopher problems. And then ants and spiders and then rodents that got inside the 3rd car garage wrecking havoc on our stuff. They always try to get somebody to get to the house right away. Nic Shafer is the one always going to our house. He always ring the doorbell to let me know he's going to check the bait boxes in our backyard. Sometimes he calls beforehand. When I see him, he always asks me how everything is going and if there are problems and he always go and check and solve these problems if we have them. He's polite and knows how to get rid of these pests. Great job Nic!
I have been using this company since I moved to Riverside 3 years ago and I'm very happy with them. Gophers were invading our property and they got rid of them very quickly. Anytime there is new activity, Mike is just a call away. He responds promptly and is very efficient. I would definitely recommend them!
Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control is the only company we call to handle our pest issues. Mike is always willing to handle any job we throw his way. Incredibly reliable, efficient, affordable and always goes beyond the call of duty. Last minute phone calls to handle rodent issues are never a problem - Mike has always been there for us. We highly recommend this company to all.
John came out right away and set multiple gopher traps. He was knowledgeable and thorough, even cleaning up the dirt from the gopher mounds. Looking forward to having these destructive rodents permanently removed!
Great company... Joseph is so thorough. He shows up every month like clock work !! I highly recommend them!
