Is It Possible to Eradicate Gophers?


We understand just how frustrating it can be to have gophers damaging your yards, gardens, and landscapes. Unfortunately there is no way to completely eradicate them because are native to the Bay Area and most of North and Central America. This means we are living in their territory.

Gopher Control Options

Luckily there are ways to help keep them at bay and prevent damage to your property! 

There are a lot of DIY gopher treatments that you can find online. Some of our customers have also found mild success with the Gopher Hawk®. However, we have found our methods of trapping and baiting to be the most effective for long-term control.

Properties that do not regularly experience gopher activity tend to benefit most from our “one time” trapping service. This entails us placing traps underground within the tunnel system that the gophers create. Then our expert technicians will regularly monitor and check these traps until there is no longer signs of new activity. You can read more about our gopher control service here.

If your property regularly experiences gopher activity or you live near large open spaces then our ongoing program may be a better fit. Our ongoing service covers gophers, moles, and voles and entails using a combination of trapping and baiting to keep these critters under control. You can learn more about our ongoing program here.
