Rodent Guys gopher eradication in Rancho Cucamonga 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher eradication Rancho Cucamonga service protects your landscaping from the devastating damage by gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
Our typical approach for your Rancho Cucamonga gopher eradication residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Because of this our gopher eradication starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Rancho Cucamonga location. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead rodents will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication Rancho Cucamonga. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. Using two seperate methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merley 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not up to our standards for your Rancho Cucamonga home.
Not only does poison not get good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Rancho Cucamonga. The tunnels on your lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
Another common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying rodent that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving Rancho Cucamonga try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years in Rancho Cucamonga. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Rancho Cucamonga. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different 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 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Rancho Cucamonga, California.
