Gopher, Ground Squirrel, Mole, Vole & Rat Control Services for Salinas, CA

You don’t want to live with burrowing pests forever, and you shouldn’t have to get rid of them alone.

At Smith’s Pest Management, we provide pest removal services customized to your specific pest problem, needs, and property. 

Come to us for the following:

Residential Burrowing Pest Control Service

Your outdoor space is your haven. Unfortunately, burrowing pests can be very destructive and can cause thousands of dollars worth of damage to your lawn or garden in just days.

To help stop damage from burrowing pests, we provide comprehensive pest elimination services for residential properties throughout Salinas. This includes:

  • Ground squirrel control
  • Gopher control
  • Mole control
  • Vole control
  • Rat control

When you contact our team, we’ll connect you with an experienced pest control technician who will help you understand our services, process, and pricing structure. 

Next, a Smith’s technician will visit your property to assess your burrowing pest problems and develop and implement an effective and comprehensive control plan. 

Once we’ve completed the initial treatment, we’ll offer follow-up treatments, as needed, to make sure the burrowing pests are gone. 

Annual Gopher, Mole & Vole Program

Burrowing pests are persistent creatures, and they tend to re-infest areas like lawns and gardens. 

Because of this, investing in a year-round control program is the most effective way to control burrowing pests in the long term.

When you sign up for our annual gopher, mole, and vole control program, you’ll pay a flat rate to have a technician from Smith’s Pest Management service your property each month. 

The service you receive will vary, depending on your needs. In some cases, we may set and re-bait traps. In others, we’ll make exclusion recommendations or provide habitat modification services. 

No matter what, we’ll make sure burrowing pests don’t come back to damage your lawn, garden, or landscaping. 

Rat & Rodent Control

Rats and rodents are common pests throughout the Salinas, CA area and, without proper rodent protection protocols, no property is safe from a rat infestation. 

Unfortunately, once rats establish themselves on your property, they can decimate your lawn and garden and introduce dangerous diseases that can make you and your family sick.

Fortunately, you don’t have to face rats on your own.

Here at Smith’s Pest Management, we provide practical, humane, eco-friendly rat and rodent control services to help you protect your health, safeguard your property, and keep rats and other rodents away. Contact us today to learn more.

Commercial Burrowing Pest Control

You work hard to maintain your commercial landscaping, and you want to ensure it always provides a favorable first impression for your business.

Fortunately, we can help you achieve that goal. 

In addition to offering high-quality residential pest control, our team provides commercial pest control services to mitigate and prevent damage caused by ground squirrels, gophers, moles, and other burrowing pests. 

To ensure holistic and comprehensive pest management, we use an integrated pest management (IPM) approach, which allows us to address and resolve the various elements of any pest problem. 

The result? A beautiful, peaceful, impressive, and pest-free outdoor space that attracts customers and reflects well on your business. 

How we Control Burrowing Pests on Salinas Properties

If you’ve got ground squirrels, moles, gophers, voles, or rats on your property, you can trust Smith’s Pest Management to help get rid of them.

We guarantee our services and are proud of our humane pest removal offerings.

When you hire our team to get rid of burrowing pests on your property, we’ll follow this proven three-step process:



Every time we begin a pest control job, we start with an inspection.

During the inspection phase, one of our pest removal technicians will visit your property and identify the source of the pest infestation (and the types of pests present).

The tech will also assess the extent of existing pest damage, and come up with a pest control plan.



Once we finish the inspection, we’ll focus our efforts on providing pest control treatments.

Depending on the nature of the infestation, we offer a variety of treatment options, including live-trapping, habitat modification, fumigation, or baiting.

We’ll work with you to formulate a treatment plan and deploy it accordingly.



After the initial pest treatment, we focus on excluding pests.

Exclusion tactics like fencing and sealing entry points prevent pests from coming back and can be an effective way to resolve even extensive pest infestations.

If you’ve got ground squirrels, gophers, moles, voles, or rats on your property, Smith’s is here for you. We guarantee our services and provide humane gopher extermination in the Tiburon area.

My chicken coop was put up five years ago. I went out one night and almost had a heart attack because there was probably 100 rats in with the chickens. I called Smith’s and the problem was solved quickly. No more rats!
