Although they might be "cute", they are a nuisance and can carry a variety of diseases.


Prairie dogs can be a nuisance to any homeowner. Their tunneling can tear up gardens and cause damage to the foundation of a structure. They are notorious for digging, tunneling, and chewing. The presence of prairie dogs can also attract unwanted predators to your home. 

L&M Prairie Control makes great efforts to eradicate your rodent issues in a way that is humane and effective. Throughout  Northern Colorado others use a variety of removal techniques, we have determined that the CCM method is the most successful.

Using Compressed Carbon Monoxide (CCM) for prairie dog removal is both safe and humane, while effectively eliminating the problem. There is no poison, no blasting, digging, or trapping. This method is also completely safe to use around pets and livestock.

CCM is a state-of-the-art solution that targets burrowing rodents without compromising crops and vegetation or endangering other wildlife. The process involves injecting carbon monoxide into the tunnel system with great accuracy. Then, the gas will spread throughout the tunnel, putting the rodents to sleep. This is safe, humane, and highly effective if it is done with high pressure.

Prairie Dog Facts

Prairie dogs occupy an estimated two million acres in North America. Three species of prairie dogs inhabit Colorado. The black-tailed prairie dogs live on the eastern plains, Gunnison prairie dogs in the southwestern third of the state, and the white-tail prairie dog in the northwestern third of the state.

Prairie dogs are hosts for fleas, making them susceptible to plague. Plague may be transmitted to humans via flea bits.

Prairie dogs can damage rangeland and crop production farms. Elimination of prairie dogs does not guarantee the recovery of productive rangeland. Additional efforts must be taken to restore the affected to range and grasslands.

The  density of  35 prairie dog mounds per acre is common, although up to 95 have been reported. Prairie dogs are relatively large burrowing ground squirrels that weigh 1-1/2 to 3 pounds and 14 to 17 inches long. They have one litter of three to eight young per year.
