Beware of the CA Ground Squirrel.

Ground squirrels are a very serious problem in California Agriculture.

Ground squirrels can wreak havoc on Fruit and nut trees; for example, almond, apple, apricot, orange, peach, pistachio, prune, and walnut, are especially vulnerable to damage caused by ground squirrels. Ground Squirrels, burrow around roots, eat seeds and shrubs, and spread disease. They can also destroy irrigation lines and plastic sprinkler heads by chewing on them.

Damage Prevention for ground squirrels

There’s no question that the ground squirrel population needs to be controlled to prevent major damage to crops and irrigation equipment. The method you choose depends on the season and life-cycle of the squirrel. In the upcoming Summer and Fall seasons the bet method for controlling ground squirrel population is by baiting. Ground squirrels are most likely to eat the treated grain at this time, unlike other seasons when they primarily eat green forage.

Now is the time to buy a Squirrel Bait Stations to prepare for late spring and summer baiting. Water-Ways stocks the cheapest priced Squirrel Bait Stations. Watch this video to see how they work.

It’s important to remember Ground squirrels can re-invade empty burrows. Old burrows must be destroyed and ripped through by at least 20″ deep.

Industrial – Water Transfer for Fracking/Drilling

fracking 5

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a method of extracting natural gas and/or oil by drilling a hole as deep as a mile, then using explosives to fracture rock so that water and other chemicals can be pumped into the shale so that the gas is released. Fracking has proven to be an effective method of removing natural gas from areas that would’ve been impossible to extract it from only a few decades ago. Of course, in order for this type of drilling to be successful, millions of gallons of water are required. In areas where water is not readily available, industries require water to be piped in from long distances.


Piping water for fracking is one of the key elements to successfully extracting natural gas and can often be a difficult process in and of itself. Because of this, drilling companies rely on the industrial professionals at Water-Ways to provide them with the water that they need, no matter where they happen to be working. It is simply not enough to truck in water. The water must be readily available in enormous quantities in order for hydraulic fracturing to be successful and efficient.
