Landscape Pro Turned Trapping Specialist

As a graduate of Cal Poly Horticulture (Class of 2002),  owner Zachary Smith worked nine years as a landscape professional- dealing with gophers, moles, and ground squirrels every day.

He founded Smith's Pest Management, after long and frustrating (and ultimately unproductive) search for an excellent gopher control service. Zachary learned to get rid of gophers so well that he began to help other local gardeners eliminate their moles, ground squirrels and gophers from lawns and landscapes too.

Today, Zach and his team trap and remove burrowing pests from residential and commercial properties as well as schools, cemeteries, vineyards, and public parks throughout the San Francisco Bay area, from Marin to Monterey. Click here for more information on our service area.

  • State Trapper’s License
  • Qualified Applicator’s License (QAL)
