Gophers, Moles, Rats, Ground Squirrels & Yellowjackets

When it comes to trapping gophers, moles, voles, garden rats ground squirrels & getting rid if yellowjacket wasps (who often take up residence in gopher holes)  there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. At Smith’s Gopher Trapping Service, we use a combination of the most effective methods to eliminate landscape pest problems that are caused by animals digging and tunneling in the ground.

Contrary to what many people assume, the typical pest control company just doesn’t have the expertise needed to get rid of these subterranean pests (most pest control is focused on indoor bugs and spiders). That’s why Smith’s is the top name in the San Francisco Bay Area and Monterey/Carmel for mole, rat, and gopher removal.

Mole? Rat? Gopher? Ground Squirrel? Who’s tearing up the grass on your property, anyway? Learn a simple process for how to ID your pest.

In fact, as an expert trapper knows, successfully removing burrowing rodents from your property requires a specialized skill. Poison is not even close to being as effective as our trappers are (note sometimes large populations of ground squirrels need to be treated with bait. The bait we use is very safe and effective- and very low-cost.)

Smith’s Gopher Trapping Service team knows precisely how to handle each of the unique challenges that these vertebrate pests can create. Did you know that yellowjackets’ (aka ground bees) favorite home is in abandoned squirrel burrows or gopher holes to build their nests and hives?  Many children and gardeners (and our employees) are swarmed and stung each summer by stepping on a yellow jacket nest.  When it comes to yellow jacket control, we guarantees results. Any nests/ hives that we treat will be re-treated at no cost if the wasps return. Typically one-two treatments will get rid of  yellow jackets for good.

We are so certain that you’ll be happy with the results of our pest removal service, we offer a satisfaction guarantee.
