Rodent Guys gopher extermination in Highland 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher extermination Highland service protects your property from the extensive damage caused from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other animals. Our approach for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone around.
The typical method for your Highland gopher extermination home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher extermination starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Highland yard. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination Highland. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. Using 2 different control techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. Even the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher than that but still not up to our standards for your Highland landscape.
Not only does poison not have good results it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another 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 several feet below the surface in Highland. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
Another 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Highland try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years in Highland. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Highland. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Highland, California.
