ground squirrels
I have ground squirrels digging holes under my oaks by the house. I really have lots of them making large holes in the pasture where my horses are. I'm afraid that the horses will break a leg in the holes and have to be put down. How do I get rid of the pests?

UC Davis recommends a combination of baiting, trapping and fumigation to get rid of the California ground squirrel, in sync with their feeding cycles. Go to their site at http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7438.html for further information.
