Chino Gopher Control with NO Poisons
60 Day Guarantee For Gopher and Mole Control Services
Rodent Guys gopher control Chino service protects your property from the devastating damage caused from gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of anyone around.
Our typical method for your Chino gopher control home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher control starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Chino home. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control Chino. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. Using two types of techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results for your Chino landscape.
Not only does poison not get good results it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Chino. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying rodent that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Chino try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years in Chino. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Chino. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety and legal in Chino, California.
