Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
The typical method for your Montclair gopher extermination home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher extermination starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Montclair yard. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination Montclair. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 seperate techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but not too low for repeatable results for your Montclair home.
Not only does poison not get good results it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison from 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 (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow 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 below the surface in Montclair. The tunnels on your lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground 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 bait. 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 don’t let a pest control company serving Montclair tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years in Montclair. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in Montclair. When 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 eradication.
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 lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Montclair, California.
