Gophers, moles, voles, and ground squirrels can literally ruin a perfectly good yard. Their destructive burrowing activities not only kill grass, create lumpy spans, and weaken the root structure of your bushes, but they can also attract snakes and other harmful predators.
Removing these pesky invaders may not solve your problems for long though because they aren't your biggest issue. The root of your invasion is—more than likely—what's attracting the critters in the first place: insects. Due to the rich food supply in your back yard (ants, termites, bugs, grubs and other creepy-crawlies living below the surface) those little furry creatures just can't resist the smorgasbord! Getting rid of the insect infestation is a good way to kill two birds with one stone. Then you can finally get back to enjoying your backyard the way it was intended.
