Gopher and Vole Control Tips and Techniques

Can you identify each one of these pests? Take a quiz as you go through the presentation.

Crop damage from gophers, voles, and ground squirrels is frustrating and costly. In this presentation, UI Extension Educator Ken Hart helps you identify which pest(s) are damaging your fields and crops, then presents effective techniques for getting rid of them. These pests can be so pervasive that you may need a combination of methods to reduce their populations and prevent further migration into treated areas. Some of these methods require a private applicator’s license as the products are labeled Restricted Use. Care must be taken to avoid poisoning nontarget populations, such as pets and livestock.
