Are gophers are squirrels taking over you property? If so, you may not know what to do about them. These animals reproduce quite rapidly. Even if you only see a few right now, you will be surprised at how that number can grow. There are a number of reasons to be concerned about their presence. Do not be fooled into thinking that because they are cute they cannot wreak havoc on your property. This is why many people opt to have them eradicated by an Exterminator in Oceanside. Allowing them to continue to dwell on your property can result in property damages for you. Surely, you do not want that. After all, they are not your pets.


Gophers and squirrels burrow into the dirt. This means your beautiful grass or charming flowers can be affected by their activities. Also, keep in mind they are known to rummage when they are hungry. This means if you have seeds or other edible items stored on your property they will likely want to get a taste. At first, you may only notice a few holes in the ground on your property, but these animals are continuously burrowing underneath the ground and creating intricate tunnels. This is in their nature much in the same way carpenter ants burrow through wood. It is an innate trait of theirs.


The issue with burrowing underground is much more than the unsightly view of your lawn. The burrowing can result in the underlying soil becoming unstable. This can lead to someone injuring themselves on your property due to not knowing a hole is present or the soil is unstable. Too much unstable soil can cause problems with the foundation of your home. It can also lead to soil erosion and issues with water draining correctly. Think about the lawns you have seen that have huge puddles outside after rainstorms.


You may have concerns about humane pest control. Speak with an exterminator in Oceanside. They may have alternatives to killing the cute “fur balls.” If not, keep in mind these are wild animals, not domesticated animals, causing the issues for your property.
