Yellow-bellied marmots are large rodents common in the Spokane area. These social critters are the largest of the squirrel family. They measure about 18 to 25 inches in length, and have wide heads, and stout bodies. Marmots dig elaborate mazes of burrows underneath yards, gardens, and pastures to house their large colonies.
If you’re dealing with a colony of marmots on your property, Eden Advanced Pest Technologies can help. Our team of marmot control experts has the experience and equipment necessary to quickly remove the animals.
Marmots, also known as whistle pigs and rock chucks are omnivores. They eat insects, flowers, grasses, grains, and ripe vegetables. They will not only cause major damage to crops and gardens, but they can also spread ticks that cause Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme Disease. It’s also possible for them to transmit rabies and hantavirus.
Signs of Marmots
Marmots love to lounge around in the sun and eat. They may also play and groom each other, so spotting them may be easy. Other signs of marmots include:
- Whistling sounds
- Marmot droppings which are elongated and pointed at the ends
- Holes in the ground
- Chewed wires
- Damaged crops or gardens
Marmot Removal Process
Eden Advanced Pest Technologies offers a fast and effective solution to marmot infestations. Our device, called the “Gopher X”, is a very low hazard method of removing marmots. It involves pushing heated smoke and carbon monoxide through the marmot’s tunnels for about 3 minutes, ultimately killing them.
This method doesn’t use poisons that can kill or harm other animals, pets, or produce. It doesn’t cause disruptions to your land, and it doesn’t require the use of traps which can be time-consuming.
