Rodent Guys gopher control in San Bernardino 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher control San Bernardino service protects your property from the vast damage by gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone around.
Our typical method for your San Bernardino gopher control home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our gopher control starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your San Bernardino location. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control San Bernardino. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Utilizing two types of methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher than that but not up to our standards for your San Bernardino home.
Not only does bait not get good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in San Bernardino. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The other 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 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 bait and do not let a pest control company serving San Bernardino tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher eradication for our customers over the years in San Bernardino. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly in San Bernardino. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 San Bernardino, California.
