Rodent Guys gopher extermination in Upland 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher extermination Upland service protects your landscape from the devastating damage by gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of any company around.
The normal approach for your Upland gopher extermination residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher extermination starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Upland yard. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead rodents will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination Upland. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the nest. With two different methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes 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 fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little better than that but not up to our standards for your Upland home.
Not only does bait not get good control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Upland. The tunnels on your landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The other 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Upland tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher control in the past few years in Upland. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved right away in Upland. When 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 fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. 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 Upland, California.
