Designated and Declared Pests

Ground Squirrel

Wyoming ground squirrel

Wyoming ground squirrels are State Designated Pests in Wyoming although the species is native to the state. Fremont County Weed and Pest does not operate an organized control effort for ground squirrels.

The animals can impact vegetable crops and ornamental plants, and their burrowing can cause damage to landscaping, cultivated fields and pastures. The district stocks baits and other controls for sale to landowners who wish to regulate the species on their lands.
