Rodent Guys gopher eradication in Loma Linda 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher eradication Loma Linda service protects your landscaping from the devastating damage from gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
Our typical method for your Loma Linda gopher eradication home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher eradication begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Loma Linda location. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication Loma Linda. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing 2 different control techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit better than that but still not too low for repeatable results for your Loma Linda property.
Not only does bait not have good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available 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 into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Loma Linda. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Loma Linda tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years in Loma Linda. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in Loma Linda. Since 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Loma Linda, California.
