60 Day Guarantee For Gopher and Mole Control Services
Rodent Guys gopher control Redlands service protects your property from the extensive damage caused from gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of anyone around.
Our normal approach for your Redlands gopher control residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Because of this our gopher control begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Redlands property. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first 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 more gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Using 2 types of techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait sold to 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. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher but still not high enough for your Redlands property.
Not only does bait not have good results it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Redlands. The tunnels on your landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit 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 consumed 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 own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Redlands try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years in Redlands. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved 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 highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. 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.
