Our residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
The typical approach for your Alta Loma gopher control residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher control begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Alta Loma property. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control Alta Loma. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 different methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better than that but not high enough for your Alta Loma property.
Not only does poison not have good control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Alta Loma. The tunnels on your landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
Another way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying rodent that ate the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Alta Loma tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher extermination for our customers over the years in Alta Loma. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know people want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Alta Loma. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety and legal in Alta Loma, California.
