I'm a stay at home dad, based in Orinda, that became interested in gophers and moles after battling them on my own property. I've studied and practiced extensively and now consider myself an expert in the "ways of the gopher". I only use mechanical traps, no bait or poison, and I do not trap voles.
I primarily service: Lafayette, Moraga, and Orinda. Unfortunately, due to routing efficiency, I would have to charge significantly more to travel further than that. I'm happy to recommend another provider for you though.
I offer (A) 'pay per critter' plan where you only pay for each successful capture, or (B) monthly subscription flat rate fee. For the majority of situations, for many reasons, I believe the per critter plan is the better choice for the customer. If you have any questions, please ask!
As I am usually busy chasing kids around, I never answer my phone. please TEXT!
In your message, please include your address and a picture(s) of the activity you're seeing. We do not do site visits without this.
I do this because I enjoy helping people. I have mastered several proprietary trapping techniques and am incredibly busy. If you have strong opinions about how we should be doing our job, please do not hire us. Additionally, to keep our efficiency high, and hence costs low, we do not offer specific appointment times. We provide a service day only and you do not need to be there. If you are there, often times you will not even see us as we set, check, or remove traps and then depart; typically in under 15 minutes.
Due to some bad experiences in the past, there will be a cancellation fee charged if you do not notify us by 8am the morning of your scheduled visit you no longer want our help.
