Click on the Home > Animal Removal link right below your question and you will find several responses on how to get rid of ground squirrels and gophers - from gum to poison to guillotine traps.

To have a professional come and do it is going to be a bit pricey and be an on-going thing, as it will take repeated trips, and after 1-3 months others will probably move in to the area and require erradication.

I would go with the do-it-yourself mode, then locate a bunch of their tunnels by the mounds, and open them up and put in mothballs in each tunnel you can find, then fill in the openings. Put the mothballs into the open part of the tunnel, not where you are filling in the hole, so the fumes permeate the tunnel system. It will NOT eliminate current gophers - they will just block off the tunnel to stop the smell, but it will go a long ways to keeping others from moving in - they do not like the smell, so they will head another direction.
