Nothing is worse than spending time and money on creating a beautiful yard for you and your family to spend time in, only to notice dirt mounds. Dirt mounds could be a sign of either moles or gophers, both of which are very common in the Bay Area. Gophers and moles are two of the most damaging animals you could have infesting your lawn. For over 35+ years, our EcoWise-certified mole and gopher control experts have been safely removing these animals without harming them, your family, or your pets.

Moles are a small species of rodent that tend to tunnel along the surface of the ground, with their tunnels often being found along walkways and planters. While they’re unlikely to invade your home, these pests can damage your lawn’s health and appearance. Moles feed on lawn insects like grubs, worms, and other underground pests, which is why they’re attracted to your lawn in the first place. For our mole control in the Bay Area, our team at ATCO uses safe trapping and/or eco-friendly rodenticide bait that mimics a worm to eliminate these destructive pests.
Because of how damaging moles can be to your lawn, it’s important to know the warning signs that you may have a mole infestation. If you notice these signs, call the professional mole trapping experts at ATCO to safely remove these animals from your lawn.
The signs of moles in your yard include:
Gophers are large underground rodents that create deep tunnels in your yard, typically up to six feet deep. Additionally, they can transmit various diseases to your pets if they come into contact. Our gopher trapping relies on safely trapping to remove gophers in order to protect the beloved family and pets of our customers. The strength of the rodenticide needed to eliminate a gopher would be deadly to a cat or dog if they encountered it, and so we believe trapping is a wiser option for gopher control in the Bay Area.
Gophers are the largest rodent you may see in your yard—compared to moles, voles, or squirrels—meaning they can cause the most damage to your lawn. They are shy creatures, however, so it’s unlikely you may see them above ground. It’s best to keep an eye out for these signs of gophers during the spring and fall, when they’re most active.
