Our Burrowing Pest Control Process for Fairfax Properties

Burrowing pests got you down? Our team’s three-step process is proven to eliminate gophers, moles, voles, rats, and more:

Next, we’ll deploy the treatment options that will be most effective for your pest problem. Our treatment lineup includes humane trapping, habitat modification, fumigation, and baiting, among others. We’ll discuss each treatment method with you



Next, we’ll shift our focus to exclusion methods. Exclusion tactics are designed to prevent pests from returning. We use approaches like fencing, sealing entry points, and more to keep pests away from your property.

If you’ve got ground squirrels, gophers, moles, voles, or rats on your property, you can trust our expert team to eliminate them for you. Additionally, we guarantee our services and always prioritize humane gopher extermination for our customers in the Fairfax area and beyond.

“For years I’ve raised all the produce in my garden that we eat in our home. One year we started having gopher problems. When I contacted a local pest control company they wanted to use poison which we did not agree with. Smiths offered a non toxic and effective approach to getting rid of my gophers, moles, and rats.”
