Ground Squirrel invasions in landscapes are very hard to stop, but with Corky’s System of extermination, long term control is possible. View our squirrel Identification page to learn about the most prevalent species found in Southern California.
Here’s how Corky’s Ground Squirrel Service Program Maintains Control
Corky’s treatment program focuses on areas unique to your property, where ground squirrels have set up housekeeping. This 2-step service program includes an initial service, consisting of 2 treatments, 4 weeks apart and follow-up maintenance services scheduled to control future invasions. Here is what you may expect our program to include.
Property Inspection: We inspect the property for visible signs of their presence and check favorite harborage areas where their activity may be less apparent.
Treatment: Equipment especially built to exterminate ground squirrel populations will be used to accomplish control in the landscape. Heated smoke and carbon monoxide is pushed through tunnels and into nesting areas effectively exterminating ground squirrels. Our equipment operates without the negative effects caused by other methods. It does not cause explosions that can disturb large areas of land (and even start fires).
Recommendations: Your technician may make recommendations as to measures that will promote successful control of these pests on your property. These measures could include, but are not limited to; elimination of food sources from the property (bird seed, fallen fruit and nuts) and removal of debris and mowing of tall grass. The following should be accomplished before any service is performed in order to ensure a successful treatment.
Maintenance Services: Ground Squirrels will migrate from surrounding properties and new damage can occur quickly. If your property is bordered by infested areas, then you can expect regular invasions. This is why a scheduled maintenance program is so important.
