Rodent Guys gopher control Colton service protects your landscape from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of.

Our normal method for your Colton gopher control residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or poison similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.

Instead our gopher control starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Colton home. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When we come to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control Colton. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. Using two types of techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.

Colton: Why do you not poison?

There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the commercial 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 technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher than that but still not high enough for your Colton property.

Not only does bait not get good control it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill 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 eats the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Colton. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.

The other common 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Colton tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use traps?

Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher eradication for our customers over the years in Colton. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.

Why use carbon monoxide?

We know customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in Colton. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.

The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire 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 nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Colton, California.
