Rodent Guys gopher eradication Alta Loma service protects your property from the vast damage caused from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of.

Our typical approach for your Alta Loma gopher eradication residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found 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 Rodent Guys gopher eradication starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Alta Loma location. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead rodents will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication Alta Loma. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the burrow. Using 2 seperate methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.

Alta Loma: Why not poison?

While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but still not up to our standards for your Alta Loma landscape.

Not only does poison not have good results it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.

The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Alta Loma. The tunnels on your lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.

The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying rodent that ate the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Alta Loma try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the reason for traps?

Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years in Alta Loma. 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. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?

Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Alta Loma. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.

The carbon monoxide floods 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Alta Loma, California.
