Rodent Guys gopher control in Rialto 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher control Rialto service protects your landscape from the vast damage caused from gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
The normal approach for your Rialto gopher control home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Based on this our gopher control starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Rialto location. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control Rialto. After the trapping we will 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. Using 2 types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merley 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher but not high enough for your Rialto home.
Not only does bait not get good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill 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 eats the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Rialto. The tunnels on your landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying rodent that ate the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Rialto try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years in Rialto. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved right away in Rialto. Since 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 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 lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies 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 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 Rialto, California.
