Ground Squirrel Inspection
Your pest control service will begin with a licensed technician providing a full inspection of your residence and property to identify the infestation. During the inspection, your pest control technician will identify potential problem areas around your home or office. After the source of your problem areas have been identified, your technician will point out other potential areas ground squirrels may nest and will show you the steps you can take to reduce future infestations. Your technician will create a customized squirrel treatment plan for year-round protection, using the most effective and environmentally-conscious burrowing rodent control solutions.

Quick Facts Ground Squirrels
Ground squirrels feed on trees, shrubs and vegetation. In heavily populated areas, ground squirrels have been known to steal food left outside by humans. In southern California, ground squirrels don’t hibernate for winter and are generally active all year long, though some may stay dormant for a small period of time. They are grayish, light brown in color and roughly 18 inches long from head to tail.
Ground squirrels burrow in holes they scoop out themselves. In some cases, ground squirrels share the tunnel system with each other, but each squirrel will have its own entrance. Squirrels will also use existing holes to create their homes.
Ground squirrels will feed on ornamental plants, fruits and vegetables and so they are often considered garden pests. Squirrels can also spread disease and parasites. In some cases, squirrels can find their way to attic space and destroy insulation while they build their nests.
The best method to remove a squirrel population is to use exclusion. All holes in the yard or attic will need to be sealed. We recommend beginning a preventative maintenance program to keep them from returning. Griffin Pest Management uses humane methods of trapping and removal. We also offer cleanup and restoration services if squirrels have damaged your property. For more information about our ground squirrel removal services, call us today.

Griffin Pest Management resolved our rodent issue and responded quickly and professionally. They went above and beyond resolving not just our rodent issue, but they fixed a storage cabinet for us as well. A big shout out to Roger Delazzer for being so nice, accommodating and fixing all our problems long term. I would definitely recommend Griffin Pest Management to anyone looking for this service.
I recently used Griffin Pest Management for the first time and it was great! Their employees are very nice, helpful, and they come out as soon as needed. We had rats in our attic and the men were quick and thorough in getting the pests out and cleaning up. They covered up any possible entry ways where the rats could have been coming in, and they even came back a few days later to follow up. I would definitely recommend Griffin to anyone with any kind of pests!
