Rodent Guys gopher extermination in Loma Linda 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher extermination Loma Linda service protects your home from the devastating damage caused from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
Our typical method for your Loma Linda gopher extermination residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher extermination starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Loma Linda home. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with small 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 Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination Loma Linda. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two seperate techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to 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. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but still not high enough for your Loma Linda landscape.
Not only does bait not get good results it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Loma Linda. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
Another 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 lethal bait 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 bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Loma Linda try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years in Loma Linda. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Loma Linda. Since 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 highest chances of full gopher eradication.
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 lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are turned 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 Loma Linda, California.
