Rodent Guys gopher eradication in Grand Terrace 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher eradication Grand Terrace service protects your landscape from the devastating damage by gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of.
Our typical method for your Grand Terrace gopher eradication home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison 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 high.
Instead our gopher eradication begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Grand Terrace yard. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow 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 all of the dead rodents will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication Grand Terrace. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Using two types of methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Serveral poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional strength 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 slightly better but still not too low for repeatable results for your Grand Terrace property.
Not only does bait not have good results it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Grand Terrace. 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 ate the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Grand Terrace try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years in Grand Terrace. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child 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 customers want their gopher problem solved quickly in Grand Terrace. 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 highest 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Grand Terrace, California.
