Why You Should Call A Professional When You Spot Gophers In Fremont, CA

Gophers are garden pests that spend most of their lives underground and out of sight of people. This makes them difficult pests to eliminate and control. If you spot gopher damage on your property, it is important to contact a professional. Professionals understand gophers and can provide the services needed to eliminate them, minimizing the amount of damage their feeding habits cause to grass, trees, shrubs, and plants. 

At Smith’s Pest Management, we have developed an effective method to trap and remove gophers from properties. Our professionals find and expose a portion of the gopher’s tunnel. Then they place a stainless steel gopher trap inside. After a few days, our professionals return to remove the gophers from the traps. They will repeat the process until all the gophers have been removed from your property. To eliminate destructive gophers from your property once and for all, call Smith’s Pest Management today!
