About Us

The Gopher Guy

Ross Roberts is a retired Foster City Police Lieutenant.  He officially became The Gopher Guy in 2004.  It started as a hobby helping out at his son's pre-school in trapping the gophers around the school lawn.

Family History of Trapping

Being a trapper is in his blood as his grandfather made a career of it in San Mateo County where he worked for the Federal Fish and Wildlife Service in the 1950's and 1960's.  


Ross Roberts is a licensed trapper serving only the Coastside from Half Moon Bay to Pacifica.  He specializes in ridding your property of small nuisance animals such as gophers, moles, snakes, raccoons, coyotes and foxes.  We help keep your lawn beautiful.
