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.

Ground Squirrel Control Testimonials
Very professional and quick response. After I got issue with my previous pest control company, I picked Griffin and I was right. They gave me detailed inspection after walking around the place, and provide me lots of advices to keep my are free of insects and rodents. Their price quote is also unbeatable so of course I signed contract with them right away. Although I just got the schedules twice in the last 2 months but I can tell they're very responsible. So lucky I found them.

I'm a new customer with Griffin. I had my first rodent and pest control with this company, this month. Eric showed up, he was very polite, and professional. He was also very thorough. He exceeded my expectations, considering that I left this other Pest control company, due to poor customer service, rude employees, and poor management. I'm very glad that I switched over to Griffin. I just wish I had done it sooner! Great Company, based locally in O.C, very attention to detail.

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.
