Dealing with a pocket gopher problem in your yard can be a very frustrating process for homeowners. Because they can dig extensive tunnel systems underground, remedying the situation is not as simple as just setting a trap out and letting the animal come to you, and there are a myriad of products out there that claim to be the best solution. Here at Wildout we have spent years perfecting a process to not just remove the pocket gophers, but keep your yard protected in the future.
No matter the target animal, any good pest control process begins with the inspection. Pocket gopher activity is usually very apparent, large mounds of dirt start appearing in your yard, but we will inspect and evaluate not just where the pocket gophers already are, but also where they potentially came from. Since they are a burrowing animal, we also need to evaluate the type of ground they are burrowing in, and how extensive that burrowing is so we can formulate the best way to address the problem. Once the inspection is complete, we can move on to step 2.
The only truly effective way to remove pocket gophers is to find their active tunnels and set traps inside. While this might seem straightforward, pocket gopher burrows can range anywhere from six inches deep to six feet deep, and their tunnels can be hundreds of feet long! Also, depending on your soil type some traps might not be as effective as others. Luckily we have the experience necessary to find those tunnels, and the knowledge to know what traps will work best for your specific situation.
After your initial pocket gopher problem has been resolved, we will perform maintenance to keep the problem under control. We will treat your yard on a regular basis with a product that makes the roots below ground and the green plants like grass and weeds it can reach from its burrow that they like to feed on taste unappealing. The intent of this treatment is to convince the pocket gophers that your yard is not the ideal environment for them to live in. While we have a high success rate with the treatments we know that there is no foolproof method to keep animals out of your yard, for that reason part of our maintenance program is trapping as soon as new activity appears to make sure your yard stays pocket gopher free.
We’re passionate about helping people just like you get rid of unwanted pest problems. As such, we are proud to be the only pest control company in Orlando, Tampa, Lakeland promising excellence in value, service, and trust.
I contacted this animal control company, and they responded quickly. Raccoons were making noises in my attic, which I discovered after I peeked into the attic. The technicians were really efficient, explaining everything they were going to do and then doing it. I got a call from their customer service rep just a few days after the raccoon was removed to make sure everything was fine. Excellent customer service and a well-done job. I highly recommend their services!– Norma M. in St. Petersburg, FL Oren Smith & Wildout Animal & Pest Removal treated our small job as his most important job of the day. He squeezed us into his busy schedule and resolved our issue early in the morning. He came to our house and discovered there was no animal issue and there was no charge. I would definitely recommend his service.– Rick B. in Bradenton, FL Thank you so much, Oren and Mike! I called Wildout and in a matter of a few hours, they came and removed the deceased cat from underneath my house. Very friendly and professional and respectful of the dead animal. I was referred to Wildout by another Wildlife removal company that was unavailable. I will definitely call them again if I ever have the need.– Susan F. in Bradenton, FL We had a dead feral cat in our backyard. We called the county and were told that they would forward it to a contractor. Three days passed and we HAD to get rid of the smelly dead cat. Wildout gave us a decent price to remove it, was very professional, and we will definitely call them again if we ever have another dead feral cat although we pray we won’t.– Sally G. in Bradenton, FL Joe Figueroa is professional, pleasant, and calming! He communicates about his arrival times & if his schedule is altered (due to helping other customers). He educates about the situation & helps to find the best solutions for creatures and humans. (We were dealing with snakes & other rodents.) He cares about the details of his work and looks for ways to help save money. He’s a gem!– Kat C. in Orlando, FL Chris was pleasant, kind, and very knowledgeable about what I needed to have done in the house. He made sure that everything got done according to the needs of my home, and he got rid of the rats for me. I appreciate your professional attitude and how well he knew his job. Thank you for a job well done.– Laura W. in Orlando, FL Free inspection. Honest assessment of the situation. No current infestation. Blocked one potential access point. Fee for that a little higher than expected, but reasonable considering the free inspection and no false claims of infestation.– Allan B. in Orlando, FL Wildout excellently gets the job done! Needed emergency service for a double nest of yellow jackets stinging both me and my dogs. Wild out responded immediately, Sent a tech in under an hour, and solved the problem perfectly. Highly recommend this elite Band of Brothers to round up all your wild intruders.– G. Gibson in Tampa, FL Thank you Chris for an excellent job. You got rid of 6 raccoons that were tearing up my backyard. You were always here when you said you would be, courteous, and always keep in touch with me. Great job and again thank you.– Margaret C. in Tampa, FL Very professional company with a lightning sense of humor! Got the job done quick and smooth! Definitely would recommended it! Showed up promptly, assessed the problem, and safely removed a snake that snuck into my house!– Chris B. in Tampa, FL. Can’t say enough about Chris and Matt. Had a pretty challenging rodent issue at the house. Kept us up at night for many nights with scratching and chewing. Chris and Matt kept at it until we found the issue and took care of it, at least all indications are that it is taken care of (fingers still crossed). Even after I expressed quite a bit of frustration due to lack of sleep, they kept on it. Very satisfied. They went above and beyond to help us out.– Jay T. in St. Petersburg, FL I received a free estimate, FREE, for real! Susan in their office was such a help and great to speak with. She set me up with Tech Ryan who looked at my attic thoroughly as well as other areas I thought may be point of entries. No current activity found…PHEW! He did advise me on deterrence if needed. He was well mannered, respectful and kept a mask on during the whole visit. I highly recommend just on estimate alone!– MariAnne O’Neill Oren was Awesome! He let me know upfront each step that they would need to do to take care of our Opossum problem. He also let me know upfront the costs, and there were no surprises. Oren was caring and found a nice new home for the captured Opossums. He was even able to seal up their entry point where they were getting into the attic. I hope to not have to use their service again; however, wouldn’t hesitate to give them a call if I have any animal issues in the future. I would highly recommend their services.– Rick O. in St. Petersburg, FL Quick response and excellent service. Had sparrows and other birds nesting in several areas around 2 story home. Bird deterrent gel was placed inactive areas, and then they returned a couple of days later to chalk and seal all the way around the house. Also repaired damage to trim and touched up the paint. A+++ Highly recommend. Thank you so much!– Jen D. in Lakeland, FL Called this company on a Friday regarding a squirrel that kept chewing the wood on my carport. They were at my house, treating the wood, early Monday. Superfast. Super friendly. Super responsive. Thanks, Chris and Alex!!! Will recommend this company.– T Greiner. in Lakeland, FL I am a Realtor and Property Manager. One of my tenants reported a possible rodent issue. I reached out to Wildout. Meghan was VERY responsive and professional! She was quick to get the estimate completed, get the job scheduled, and resolve the issue! I could not be more pleased with her services. This will be my new go-to vendor for rodent or wildlife issues! Thanks again, Meghan!!! Highly recommend.– Jeri P. in Lakeland, FL Oren was great! He came out the same day I called his company to take care of my bird issue. I had two birds that would come and try to nest on the ledge above my front door. Previously, another company had put up a bird deterrent composed of spikes. Oren fixed the spikes to make them more effective at deterring birds and added a bird deterrent substance on the ledge. I am so thankful for his help. I highly recommend his services.– Yema E. in Sarasota, FL I called Oren with Wildout because I had a dead animal in my AC unit. He offered to do a free inspection before quoting me a price. Upon inspection, he wisely suggested that I call the AC company to verify they would not void my warranty. He then removed the lid from the AC, removed the dead rat, and disinfected the whole area in the unit. Very prompt service, very professional and completed at a fair price.– Lisa D. in Sarasota, FL This company is amazing. We have a rat in our garage and are absolutely not experts at all in animal control. We called this service a random internet find which ended up being a hidden gem. They came out the same day that we called and we talked about the situation. Oren was so thorough in the evaluation checking every area and explaining what he was doing and tips and tricks. I will be saving his number for future and recommend them to anyone who asks.– Valerie D. in Sarasota, FL I contacted this animal control company, and they responded quickly. Raccoons were making noises in my attic, which I discovered after I peeked into the attic. The technicians were really efficient, explaining everything they were going to do and then doing it.
