Getting Rid of Ground Squirrels
Though fences typically guard against the foraging of crop pests, ground squirrels are talented diggers and often burrow under such barriers.
- The cost and time required to effectively employ baits and traps make them unfavorable options.
- Habitat modification, such as removing brush piles, is the best method of ground squirrel control as it helps limit their hideouts and makes areas less favorable to nesting.
Ground Squirrel Damage
While their diet includes several harmful insects and their presence can be considered beneficial, ground squirrels still eat a variety of both cash crops and ornamental plants. Their burrowing leaves holes in the ground that can make mowing difficult, dehydrate tree roots, and weaken the foundation of structures. Additionally, ground squirrels can host parasitic ticks, lice, mites, and fleas.
