Rodent Guys gopher control Redlands service protects your home from the devastating damage by gophers and moles. Our 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 best guarantee of any company around.
Our normal method for your Redlands gopher control residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher control begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Redlands location. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead rodents will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control Redlands. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. Using two types of techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but not high enough for your Redlands property.
Not only does bait not have good results it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Redlands. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
Another way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating 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 he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Redlands tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years in Redlands. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know people want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Redlands. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate 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 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. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Redlands, California.
