Baiting Method - Our initial baiting gopher control service will generally consist of 2 visits approximately 1-2 weeks apart with free follow-ups for an additional 30 days if needed.* We use a variety of baits, milos and grains. For over a decade we have tested every treatment method available. Our preferred bait of choice is a grain injected directly into the tunnel system of the gopher. We spare no expense when it comes to the gopher bait we purchase, assuring we have the most effective materials available. We don't use the cheap stuff! The key to effective gopher control is in the experience. Our technicians know gopher patterns, tendencies, preferences and more!
Trapping Method - The trapping method generally consists of 3 visits approximately 1-2 weeks apart. We set traps in the gophers tunnel system, similar to setting a rat trap. Trapping also comes with free follow-ups for an additional 30 days if needed.* Trapping for gophers offers a different approach and sometimes is more efficient. Experience in gopher control is critical when the trapping method is used. It also offers a Eco-Friendly option just like our Eco-Friendly Pest Control.
Carbon Monoxide Method - This pet-friendly, poison-free, alternative treatment method gives us another tool in combating your gopher infestation. With our carbon monoxide (CO) treatment, heated smoke is released into the gophers' tunnel system. The smoke travels throughout the tunnel system, exterminating the gophers underground. No baits, poisons, or traps are needed with this treatment option. For more information about this treatment please call us at 1-888-466-4674.
We offer a variety of tested and proven methods to remove gophers from your yard with baiting and trapping options available. Our service generally consists of 2 visits and free follow-ups for an additional 30 days if needed.*

Scientific Information about gophers:
Pocket gophers are burrowing rodents of the family Geomyidae.
These are the "true" gophers, though several ground squirrels of the family Sciuridae are often called gophers also. The name "Pocket Gopher" on its own may be used to refer to any of a number of subspecies of the family. Gopher control and elimination is affective for these types of gophers.
Pocket Gophers are widely distributed in North America, extending into Central America
Gophers are heavily built, and most are moderately large, weighing a few hundred grams. A few species reach weights approaching 1 kg. Most gophers have brown fur which often closely matches the color of the soil in which they live. Their most characteristic feature is their large cheek pouches, from which the word "pocket" in their name derives. These pouches are fur-lined, and can be turned inside out. They extend from the side of the mouth well back onto the shoulders. They have small eyes and a short, hairy tail which they use to feel around tunnels when they walk backwards.
All pocket gophers are burrowers. They are larder hoarders, and their cheek pouches are used for transporting food back to their burrows. Gophers can collect large hoards. Their presence is unambiguously announced by the appearance of mounds of fresh dirt about 20 cm in diameter. These mounds will often appear in vegetable gardens, lawns, or farms, as gophers like moist soil. They also enjoy feeding on vegetables. For this reason, some species are considered agricultural pests. They may also damage trees in forests. Although they will attempt to flee when threatened, they may attack other animals, including cats, and can inflict serious bites with their long, sharp teeth.
