Gopher Removal In Woodside And Portola Valley

The process of gopher removal starts with a site inspection where we set traps deep underground and then flatten all the gopher piles. The gopher is killed humanely in the trap and any new piles indicate another gopher. More traps are set until all the gophers are gone.
We guarantee results, and we also back our service with a 100% money back guarantee. If you are dissatisfied with anything about our service, we will refund your money.
The process for mole eradication is very similar to gopher trapping. We locate the deep tunnels where possible, or we open up a molehill, and we set traps. No poison is ever used. Traps are better at killing gopher and moles than poison. Our non-toxic approach sets us apart.
Residents of Woodside and Portola Valley choose Smith’s Pest Management because we do not use poison and because we guarantee results. They know our traps are safe around their children and pets. We do not harm other wildlife. Poison can last for a long time and end up in the environment. Dead gophers full of poison can kill wildlife. We disdain poison.
The landscapes of Woodside and Portola Valley are often very healthy, and well cared for. These landscapes are surrounded by oak woodland that is a prime natural habitat for gophers and moles.
When these animals get driven out of the woods by drought, they enter the nearby lawns, vegetable gardens and landscapes causing much damage. Gophers eat plants and moles eat worms and grubs- both of these animals make “gopher holes” or soil piles or mounds in the grass that reveal their presence.
Smith’s Pest Management, your Bay Area Gopher Guy, provides gopher and mole trapping, as well as raccoon, skunk, vole and packrat trapping to the greater SF Bay. Give us a call to find out more about our non-toxic approach!
“Critter control” or “gopher getters” as some call our pest control method, is important to protecting lawns, plants, and landscapes.
These burrowing critters (gophers moles and voles) will cost you hundreds of dollars if not controlled. Smith’s special form of critter control is effective because we do not need pesticides. We use a lethal trap that kills the critters instantly.
Our state licensed trappers are the best of the Bay Area at critter control. We have a 100% money back guarantee and 35 top-rated reviews on yelp to back up our claims.
Please call Smith’s for Woodside and Portola Valley gopher removal and mole trapping. You will be glad you did…and with our guarantee you have nothing to lose but your gopher problem!
