Once you realize what you’re really letting onto your property, you’ll understand why so many Ventura County residents rely on our professional gopher and ground squirrel control methods.


Gophers & Ground Squirrels: Health Hazards & Home Damage

While they might not look very intimidating, gophers and ground squirrels are very problematic. These unwelcome guests will burrow into your yard, digging around for food and causing unsightly holes in the yard you work so hard to keep up. Gophers and ground squirrels will also nest near your property, leading to a number of these pests digging holes in your yard, eating your vegetation, and putting your peace of mind at risk.

Along with potential property damage, these pests also carry a variety of health dangers into your yard. Obviously, you wouldn’t want your children or your pets to happen upon a protective mother gopher or ground squirrel, but physical confrontation should be the least of your worries. Gophers and ground squirrels spread a variety of harmful diseases to humans, especially in cases of high populations. Plus, these pests can carry fleas onto your property that put you and your pets at risk of dangerous diseases, including the bubonic plague.

Comprehensive Property Protection

Since they’re expert diggers, gophers and ground squirrels can wind up in your yard very easily. It can be incredibly difficult to keep them yourself, but it’s even more difficult (and hazardous) to try and get rid of them on your own. Fortunately for you and the animals, Ventura Pest Control offers a number of gopher and ground squirrel control methods that are humane and effective.

Our process begins with a thorough inspection. Since it’s totally free, you have nothing to lose. Once we’ve completed our assessment, we’ll suggest the best treatment methods for your problems. We specialize in all sorts of wildlife control methods for these particular pests, including live gopher and ground squirrel trapping and gopher baiting, during which we identify the burrow and place the bait directly into it, drawing the pests into a trap they’ll never suspect.

We also utilize another innovative technique for gopher control:  the Gopher X Machine. This technology pumps Carbon Dioxide into the ground, making your yard much less attractive for burrowing gophers. After all of our treatments, we’ll smooth the holes over so that we can notice any potential issues in the future. These services come with a 30-day guarantee, so we’ll always follow-up to ensure maximum customer satisfaction.
