Rodent Guys gopher eradication in Montclair 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher eradication Montclair service protects your landscape from the devastating damage by gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, 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 method for your Montclair gopher eradication residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of 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 poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our gopher eradication starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Montclair yard. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication Montclair. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Using two different techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but still not high enough for your Montclair landscape.
Not only does bait not have good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Montclair. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
Another way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying rodent that ate the poison. The lethal 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Montclair 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 techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years in Montclair. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know people want their gopher infestation solved right away in Montclair. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are switched 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 Montclair, California.
