Rodent Guys gopher extermination Alta Loma service protects your property from the devastating damage caused from gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the best guarantee of any company around.

The normal approach for your Alta Loma gopher extermination home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.

Instead Rodent Guys gopher extermination starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Alta Loma yard. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally 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 pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination Alta Loma. 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 offspring in the nest. With two types of control techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.

Alta Loma: The reason to not poison?

Serveral poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. 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 only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little higher but still not high enough for your Alta Loma home.

Not only does bait not get good results it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows when they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Alta Loma. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.

Another common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying rodent that consumed 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 poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving Alta Loma tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the reason for traps?

We have played with many methods for gopher extermination for our customers over the years in Alta Loma. 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 remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?

Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved right away in Alta Loma. Since 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 fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring 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 Alta Loma, California.
