60 Day Guarantee For Gopher and Mole Control Services
Rodent Guys gopher control Fontana service protects your landscape from the vast damage caused from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of any company around.
The typical method for your Fontana gopher control residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher control starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Fontana yard. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come 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. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two different control techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Serveral poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. Even the commercial version of gopher poison 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. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but not too low for repeatable results for your Fontana property.
Not only does bait not get good control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly 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 into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Fontana. The tunnels on your landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
Another way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying rodent that ate the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Fontana tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years in Fontana. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very 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 solved right away in Fontana. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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.
