Ground Squirrel Control Services in Temecula, Fallbrook, Oceanside, and the Surrounding Areas
The suburban open spaces of Temecula, Fallbrook, Oceanside, and the surrounding areas make the perfect habitat for ground squirrels. Ground squirrels are the most common squirrel species in Southern California, with their height ranging from about 7 inches to nearly 30 inches and weighing about 4 pounds. Ground squirrels eat nuts, fruits, and seeds, but occasionally eat insects and eggs and sometimes eat small animals like rats and mice several times their size. These pesky rodents thrive in rural and agricultural environments, where they tunnel, creating burrow systems under storage sheds, barns, and buildings where they find food and water.
In Southern California, Knockout Pest Control & Termite is familiar with squirrel control. Our technicians are experienced experts in removing ground squirrels from dirt roads, office buildings, and yards.
Do I Have a Ground Squirrel Problem?
As their name indicates, ground squirrels burrow into the ground, creating tunnels up to 20 feet long. These tunnels have more than one entrance. The holes created by ground squirrels are clean and do not usually have unearthed soil in the surrounding area like other burrowing animals. Damage to residential, public, and commercial properties from ground squirrel burrows can be costly. When ground squirrels burrow in sloped terrain, the damage can be extensive, contributing to erosion that can lead to landslides and mudslides. The Knockout technicians are experts at ground squirrel pest control around paved and gravel roads and around outdoor restroom and recreation areas.
Why Ground Squirrel Control is Important
Ground squirrels can ruin vegetable gardens, landscaped areas, and fruit and nut trees in their quest for food sources. Ground squirrel pest control is more than enhancing the aesthetics of your property and maintaining the health of trees and plants; it is also necessary because ground squirrel control can protect the health of you, your family, and visitors to your property. Ground squirrels are known to host many types of parasites and diseases. In addition to fleas, ground squirrels can carry parasites that harbor spotted fever, Colorado tick fever, tularemia, and other life-threatening conditions.
