Rodent Guys gopher eradication in Highland 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher eradication Highland service protects your home from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has 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 any company we are aware of.
Our normal method for your Highland gopher eradication residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher eradication starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Highland property. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their locations. 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 pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication Highland. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using 2 different control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merley fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but still not high enough for your Highland property.
Not only does poison not have good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to eat it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Highland. The tunnels on your landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
Another way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying rodent that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Highland try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher control in the past few years in Highland. 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 pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Highland. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After 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 Highland, California.
