Smith’s Pest Management was founded by Zachary Smith in 2009 as Smith’s Gopher Trapping Service. In the years since, Zach and the team at Smith’s Gopher Trapping have helped serve home and business owners across the Bay Area with safe and effective pest management solutions for all manner of different pests.

Zach graduated from California Polytechnic State University in 2002 with a degree in horticulture, entering into the landscaping industry immediately thereafter. During his time working in landscaping, Zach quickly recognized that there was a huge need for pest control services for vertebrate pests such as gophers around the San Francisco Bay Area. Zach’s background in horticulture gave him insights into the ways these types of pests operate and the problems they cause in landscapes and gardens, putting him and the team at Smith’s Gopher Trapping in a unique position to solve these problems as they arose while preventing future infestations.However, as the years passed, customers of Smith’s Gopher Trapping Service began requesting additional services such as grub control, outdoor rodent management, and indoor insect treatments.As requests for additional services continued to rise, Zach and the team at Smith’s were forced to adapt to meet the needs of their customers. In the process, Smith’s Gopher Trapping Service gradually transformed itself from a specific service provider into an effective full-service pest control company.

It is due to this growth that we are proud to announce a change in our name to reflect our new role within the communities we serve.

As Smith’s Pest Management, we now operate under a name that fully embodies the services we provide and the expertise we can bring to any Bay Area home or business. Whether it’s gophers, rodents, insects, or any other manner of pest, the team at Smith’s Pest Management has the tools, knowledge, and experience to make it a thing of the past. We will continue to grow under our new name, providing the same level of unparalleled service you have come to expect. Give us a call today and find out all the ways we can keep your property pest-free for the future!
