Rodent Guys gopher control Grand Terrace service protects your home from the extensive damage by gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of any company around.
The typical method for your Grand Terrace gopher control residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher control starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Grand Terrace home. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control Grand Terrace. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. With 2 seperate techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison 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 technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but still not too low for repeatable results for your Grand Terrace property.
Not only does bait not get good results it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Grand Terrace. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
Another way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying rodent that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow pest control companies serving Grand Terrace tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years in Grand Terrace. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in Grand Terrace. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Grand Terrace, California.
