Rodent Guys gopher extermination Colton service protects your property from the devastating damage by gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of.

The typical method for your Colton gopher extermination residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.

Based on this Rodent Guys gopher extermination begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Colton location. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination Colton. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. Using two types of methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.

Colton: The reason to not bait?

There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merley fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but not high enough for your Colton property.

Not only does bait not get good control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Colton. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.

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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Colton 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 ways for gopher eradication in the past few years in Colton. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.

Why use carbon monoxide?

We know people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Colton. 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 floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Colton, California.
