This Isn't Caddy Shack!

Who can forget the classic scenes of Bill Murray devoting every fiber in his being to defeating the pesky varmint? From shot guns to elaborate plans, he had one mission, to get that gopher! Gopher Patrols mission is the same, getting that gopher. Like Bill Murray in Caddy Shack, Gopher Patrol takes it seriously, well not that seriously, we don't use shotguns. What we do use is a tried and true program that would have even made Bill Murray jealous.

Our method for gopher removal involves identifying the varmint, locating his tunnels and runways and applying a bait product that the gophers just love to eat. Not any bait will do though, and thats why you need the pro's. Our company goes above and beyond other pest control companies. Our restricted materials permit allows us apply an effective treatment that gets those gophers. Over the counter products require multiple feedings to work, where as our products only take one feeding.

Sure, the movie was funny and you almost found yourself cheering for the gopher, but anyone with a gopher on their property can tell you, its no laughing matter. You want to get rid of the gopher, not have him co-starring in your own Caddy Shack sequel. Gophers have no problem making mounds of dirt in you lawn, eating the roots to your rosebushes, or undermining you garden area.

Take back your property and get that gopher with Gopher Patrol. Once you get the professionals on the job that gopher wont be laughing for long. Want to get rid of gophers? Call us today to schedule an appointment or fill out our Schedule an Appointment form. Don't call "the bug guy" or "the termite man", call your local gopher control experts, Gopher Patrol!

4 ways to eliminate gophers

Are you looking for reliable ways to eliminate gophers from your premises? Are you tired to trying everything possible but still unable to eliminate gophers? Some of those ineffective methods include fumigation, flooding and burning. These methods are proven to be highly ineffective. If you have not been successful using these methods do not get disheartened because the good news is that there are better methods for getting rid of gophers from your premises.

Start with the easiest method, create a boundary for your property using the right material. You can use chicken wire as this has proven to be successful. Many people try this method but some of them find it less effective because they do not dig deep enough to discourage the gophers from digging into your garden or property. The deeper you create your fencing the more effective. You will have to dig a minimum of two feet.

Another effective method is to make use of Oleander Plant. By marking the perimeter of your garden or premises with Oleander plant you can keep the gophers from digging into your garden. The combination of chicken wire fencing and Oleander plant along the perimeter has proven to be highly successful.

The third method to eliminate gophers involves getting a new pet on your property. If you have pets like cats, dogs, etc, they will guard the property for you. These pets are very boundary conscious and they will keep the gophers off your property. Presence of dogs and cats will discourage the gophers as they always stay away from these types of dangers.

Lastly, if you do not have the time for the above methods or don’t want the hassles that go along with implementing some of these methods, you can simply call a company like Gopher Patrol. They will take care of all your concerns and worries about gophers through their professional gopher control services.

Rain Brings Em' In

There's nothing like a roof over your head. Rats and mice agree. The only problem is that these unwanted guests can quickly cause damage in your attic and garage. Rats and mice will use your attic as shelter from the elements as well as for protection from predators. Rats and mice can enter into you home through a hole as small as a quarter.

Once in your home they begin to tear through insulation and wiring to build their nest. They can cause major damage to your air conditioning, electrical wiring and create a overall smelly situation. A mouse in your attic can quickly become mice in your attic. Attics and the protection they provide are excellent places for pregnant mice to raise a family!

Why do mice always seem to be found in the kitchen? The answer is simple. Food and water are all abundant in the kitchen. Once rodents have invaded your attic they can use the voids in your walls to travel throughout the home in search of food and water. Under the cover of night mice and rats set out to find their next meal. Its hard enough sometimes to get to bed, and impossible when you can hear noises in your attic. From little sounds in the walls to what almost sounds like a party in your attic, the disruptions rodents can cause to your life is just too much to handle alone.

Here at Gopher Patrol we pride ourselves on putting your rodent troubles behind you. Why spend another night listening to noises in your attic from unwanted guests? Call Southern California's Rat Control Experts.

Is the "Rat Pack" reuniting in your home?!?

They are dark-haired, and quick on their feet – but they aren’t Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, or Sammy Davis Jr. They are rats, and if your home has been the victim of an infestation of rats, both your property and your health are at risk. Without rodent control, rats can invade and destroy possessions and structures to the tune of several thousand dollars. Worse than that, rats can carry disease and spread filth.

Although rats today are not the plague carriers of old, they are still carriers of diseases such as Murine Typhus, Salmonella and Weil's Disease, spread from rat’s urine. Other diseases they can carry include Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, Leptospirosis, Eosinophilic Meningitis and Rat Bite Fever. Many of these diseases are life-threatening and without rat control, can severely affect the human with whom they reside. They also have the unfortunate bad habit of excreting their wastes everywhere, even where they live and eat. They spread the diseases by running through their own excrement and spreading it everywhere.

Additionally, rats are destructive, chewing, gnawing, and generally destroying anything they can get their little teeth into. Adding insult to injury, many homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover damage done by vermin, so the expense of not only the clean up but of replacing valuable items and repairing such damage is out of your pocket. Rats can cause thousands of dollars worth of damage in a relatively short period of time. Rat control is also mandatory by law in some areas of the country.

Rats can tunnel through insulation, chew through wires and water pipes, and their urine and feces can cause a disgusting odor to permeate your house. Once they find their way in, they can fit through a hole the size of a quarter, and they open the door to other vermin such as raccoon and squirrels. The sound of rats scurrying in the attic or squeaking in the walls is not only annoying but unnerving.

Without rat control, one rat can turn into a dangerous infestation which can not only destroy property and compromise the health of the residents, but may prevent you from selling your home and affect the property value. Some infestations are so bad the render the home uninhabitable. The average gestation time of a rat is only 22 days, and rats can come into heat year-round. The average litter is 7-10 babies, so at that rate, you can be overrun before you even know you have a problem.

If you suspect the “Rat Pack” has invaded your home, the best thing to do is call a rat control expert. The droppings can be a health hazard, and leaving just one rat behind can start the cycle all over again.
