Ground squirrels are more than just pesky rodents. They can actually be quite destructive if left to have free reign on your Temecula property.
Ground squirrels, or more specifically, California ground squirrels, tend to live in more rural areas, like the Temecula Wine Country, but they can also be found in suburban yards and on commercial properties. They live largely underground (hence their name), creating tunnels and gnawing on plant roots along the way. They can do serious damage to plants and trees, as well as to irrigation systems. In severe cases, their burrowing can also do damage to building foundations or cause hillsides to erode.
If you have noticed ground squirrels on your Temecula property, it is best to get the problem under control right away. It may seem like they are not doing a lot of harm, and that they’re just creating small mounds of dirt on your lawn or in your planting beds, but you don’t know what they may be damaging under the surface.
Come spring, it will be ground squirrel breeding season, where female ground squirrels can have litters of approximately six to eight. Then, you have a real problem on your hands, and one that is much harder to get under control.
