Rodent Guys gopher control in Montclair 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher control Montclair service protects your property from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service 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 we are aware of.
Our normal method for your Montclair gopher control home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher control starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Montclair property. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead rodents will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control Montclair. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Using 2 different techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merley fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher than that but still not up to our standards for your Montclair landscape.
Not only does poison not get good results it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Montclair. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
Another common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying rodent that consumed the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow pest control companies serving Montclair try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years in Montclair. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved right away in Montclair. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Montclair, California.
