Rodent Guys gopher eradication Ontario service protects your landscaping from the devastating damage caused from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of.

The normal method for your Ontario gopher eradication residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.

Because of this our gopher eradication begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Ontario yard. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication Ontario. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. Using two types of methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.

Ontario: The reason to not poison?

Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merley 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better but not too low for repeatable results for your Ontario landscape.

Not only does bait not have good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Ontario. The tunnels on your property are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.

The other 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Ontario try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use traps?

Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years in Ontario. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?

We know customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Ontario. When we follow our trapping program 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Ontario, California.
