Rodent Guys gopher control in Highland 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher control Highland service protects your home from the devastating damage by gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone around.
The typical approach for your Highland gopher control home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Because of this our gopher control starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Highland location. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven 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 from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control Highland. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Utilizing two different control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher but not high enough for your Highland property.
Not only does bait not get good results it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Highland. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving Highland tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years in Highland. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Highland. When we follow our trapping program 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 unlivable 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 thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched 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 Highland, California.
