Moles, Voles, Prairie Dogs, & Other Diggers

When we say diggers, we refer to any outside underground animal. These animals create their homes by digging. Some diggers, such as gophers, can create anywhere from 10-30 mounds of dirt a month with no visible holes or entrances. Such mounds and underground hollows can break legs and bring harm when stepped on or into by other animals, livestock or people.

Diggers are a menace to lawns and vegetation. They leave trails, mounds of dirt, holes, and destroyed root systems. When they dig their tunnels next to or underneath a building or structure, they can seriously weaken the strength of it.  They disrupt and break underground utility pipes and cables.

Fortunately these animals can be controlled and removed.

Gophers
Gophers Gophers are an outside, underground animal. One gopher may create ten to thirty mounds of dirt a month, with no visible holes or entrances. Gophers are known for destroying roots and bulbs. We have several techniques to remove gophers.
Voles Voles
Voles are typically an outside, underground rodent and look similar to a small muskrat. Voles are controllable.
Muskrats
Muskrats Muskrats forage outside, usually near ponds. They create holes which undermine the integrity of dams and ponds while also destroying plants. Muskrats are controllable.



Moles
Moles Moles eat grass, plant roots, tree roots and other vegetation. They make tunnels and trails in grasses and underneath lawns. Moles can do extensive damage to landscaping. They usually live in smaller numbers. These wild animals can be controlled by trapping.
Prairie Dogs Prairie Dogs
Prairie dogs are like the common gopher in that they make mounds of dirt and create tunnels underneath the ground where they build dens. Typically their colonies are found in drier climates and sagebrush fields where they eat mainly plants and roots. They also live in the foothills. These wild animals can be controlled or trapped.
Armadillos Armadillos
Armadillos have hard, protective shells on their backs and heads. They eat insects and plants. They are low to the ground, they dig holes and chew up vegetation, and can get underneath houses. They can be controlled.
