Rodent Guys gopher control in Fontana 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher control Fontana service protects your home from the vast damage caused from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of any company around.
The typical approach for your Fontana gopher control residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or poison similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher control begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Fontana home. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead rodents will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control Fontana. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Using 2 different methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher but not up to our standards for your Fontana home.
Not only does bait not get good control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Fontana. The tunnels on your lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The last 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 dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Fontana tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?

The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know customers want their gopher problem solved quickly in Fontana. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned 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 Fontana, California.
