ground squirrel and prairie dog control


Thank you to everyone who stopped by our Burrow Blocker booth last week at the World Ag Expo in Tulare, California! More than 100,000 people attended this year's 3 day event. Mike and I met some of the nicest people. People visited us from Canada, New Mexico, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Arizona, Utah and of course, California. They all work hard and love their animals. One of their big problems is dealing with ground squirrel or prairie dog infestations. The rodents carry disease, eat their crops, and dig dangerous holes throughout their property. Besides the financial loss, they worry about someone getting hurt, their horses or cattle getting injured, or damage to their equipment and irrigation. 

Mike and I are happy that we can provide a solution that gets rid of the burrowing rodents and the holes. Another thing that people often mentioned at the event, was that they love their dogs and they don't want them eating any bait or poisons. They liked that with the Burrow Blocker, they didn't have to worry about their dog getting sick from eating a poisoned squirrel.

The World Ag Expo was a huge event and in some ways overwhelming! It had every type of machinery and farming product imaginable. I can't wait to go back next year! I'm even ready to hear people yell, "Squirrel!" again. At the event, several times a day, we'd hear someone yell, "Squirrel!" (If you've seen the movie, "UP," you'll understand the joke.) I guess our ground squirrel banner was hard to miss.

The Best Way to Fill a Ground Squirrel Hole

Ground squirrel holes! They can destroy beautiful landscaping and make athletic fields and pastures hazardous. Ground squirrel holes are much more than an unsightly nuisance, they can cause serious injuries. How do you get rid of ground squirrel holes?  Often people grab a shovel and start pushing the dirt surrounding the hole back in. That's usually not enough dirt on the outside, so they get more dirt and keep shoveling it in until it looks full. Surprise! The next day the hole is back. After trying dirt, rocks are often the next choice. Again, the next day, the hole is often back.  Why doesn't filling in ground squirrel holes using a shovel work? Shoveling in the holes is often unsuccessful, because the ground squirrel is hiding in a lower portion of the tunnel system and they dig their way out. What is the best way to fill ground squirrel holes? The Burrow Blocker machine is a fast, easy, and effective way of filling in ground squirrel holes.The patented mac

Is it a Ground Squirrel or a Gopher?

Do you know the difference between a Gr ound Squirrel and a Gopher ? If you are battling burrowing rodents on your property, after awhile you might just start channeling Carl Spackler, Bill Murray's character in the movie, Caddyshack. Remember when Sandy McFiddish, the head groundskeeper of the golf course told Carl, in his rich Scottish accent, "Carl, I want you to kill all the golfers on the golf course."? Carl replied, " Correct me if I'm wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers they'll lock me up and throw away the key." Sandy yelled, " Not golfers, you great fool! Gophers, rodents! THE LITTLE BROWN, FURRY THINGS!" Carl replied, "We can do that. We don't even need a reason." Remember that destructive dancing gopher in Caddyshack? (Be patient...it has a long intro.)     Most of the people that visit this blog, do have a reason. They want those destructive diggers to just stop destroying

Home Remedies for Ground Squirrels

People like to share with me their "Do It Yourself" Remedies for Ground Squirrels. Here are a few that I've recently heard. I can't guarantee if they work, but they're at least creative! Home Remedies for Ground Squirrels & Prairie Dogs GUM - Not ordinary gum, but Bazooka Bubble Gum. You know, the hard squares of gum that as a kid almost broke your jaw on the first bite?  Once a week, this guy's neighbor puts 1 square of Bazooka gum in every ground squirrel hole on his property. He has almost 100 holes, so I doubt if he takes the time to read the comics wrapping each gum square. The neighbor says it works well at eliminating the young ones because they can't digest the gum. According to an expert, Jim Knight, a Montana State Extension Wildlife Specialist . "Bubble gum might sometimes clog a ground squirrel's intestines or burst its stomach, but no one has conducted scientific studies on its overall effectiveness. It's hardl
