Rodent Guys gopher control in Upland 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher control Upland service protects your landscaping from the vast damage from gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other animals. Our approach for gopher removal with the best guarantee of any company around.
The normal approach for your Upland gopher control home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our gopher control begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Upland yard. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control Upland. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. Utilizing two different control techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merley fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little higher than that but not up to our standards for your Upland home.
Not only does poison not get good control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Upland. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating 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 it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Upland try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher extermination for our customers over the years in Upland. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child 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 infestation solved quickly in Upland. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once 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 Upland, California.
