Gopher Control & Removal

Gopher Control & Removal Services

Gophers are burrowing rodent which lives almost entirely underground. Gophers are well adapted to their underground existence, with stout forelegs and strong curve claws for digging. A single gopher may have a burrow system that extends as much as 800 feet, covers an acre of ground, and ranges. It is estimated that in a year, one gopher transports 2 1/2 tons of soil to the ground surface. Gophers can cause serious damage to trees, house foundation, and horses and cattle can suffer from broken legs by stepping in the tunnels that they create.

Our Unique Approach To Gopher Control & Removal

1. Gopher Inspection

Desert Squad Pest & Wildlife performs a full inspection of the property landscaping to see how severely damaged the landscape is. A good indicator of gopher activity is the opening of the holes. If a hole is plugged with fluffy, fresh dirt that typically means a gopher is inside and still digging. Otherwise, the burrow system has likely been vacated. Moles create cone-shaped mounds about 2 inches in diameter on the surface.

2. Gopher Trapping

There are several different types of techniques we may perform to remove gopher from your property depending on the situation.


  • We perform two weeks of trapping and we check our traps twice per week to remove the deceased gophers that get caught in the traps.
  • We use a carbon monoxide device to treat no only gophers but also ground squirrels, moles, voles, rats, prairie dogs, and other burrowing rodents and pests. It works by pushing heated smoke and carbon monoxide through the tunnels built by gophers and other burrowing rodents.

3. Recurring Treatment

Our monthly gopher control services will remove any new gophers that show up on your property. Call our team for more information.
