About Gophers Limited
First established in 1991, Gophers Limited is dedicated to the humane resolution of human conflicts with animals without using poisons.
We specialize in gopher and mole control. We come to your home or business, set traps and take care of your issue.
Live and lethal trapping methods are used in the place of poisons. This is due to the possibility of secondary poisoning which can harm children, pets and other wildlife. If possible, exclusion or repelling of the pest is the method of choice. Therefore aiming to permanently solve the problem rather than incurring constant pest control costs.
Training and Consulting
In addition to our trapping service we train large to small groups and individuals in our methods. Gophers Limited works with diverse clients; from farmers and ranchers, schools and institutions, to residential and commercial landscapes.
We find ways that do not degrade the environment and water resources.
