How did we get into this business you ask?

As a professional gardener and horticulturist, I could not find the level of responsiveness and value that I expected and required from the local gopher service when I searched the web and the yellow pages, so I set out kill gophers myself. By design, we are always prompt, responsive, and reliable. If a customer feels otherwise, I  make things right immediately.  Our gopher trapping employees are courteous and honest, and excited to help protect your property from burrowing pest damage.  We’ll work hard to impress you, and we guarantee results. Please check out our Yelp Reviews and our Facebook page for more info on our company, as well as our Blog.

If you like to try catching your own moles and gophers, email me and I’ll gladly share our techniques on how to trap a gopher, mole or vole. Our only “secrets” are hard work and lots of practice! Be careful that you don’t make smart gophers, their very hard to catch!
