Rodent Guys gopher control in Ontario 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher control Ontario service protects your landscaping from the vast damage by gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of any company around.
Our typical method for your Ontario gopher control residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Instead our gopher control begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Ontario home. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. 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 removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control Ontario. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the nest. Using 2 different techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but still not up to our standards for your Ontario landscape.
Not only does poison not get good control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they do not 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 deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Ontario. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
Another common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying rodent that consumed the bait. The bait 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 bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Ontario tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years in Ontario. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Ontario. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Ontario, California.
