Rodent Guys gopher removal in Colton 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher removal Colton service protects your landscaping from the vast damage caused from gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone around.
The normal method for your Colton gopher removal home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our gopher removal begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Colton property. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal Colton. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using 2 different techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merley fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly better than that but not up to our standards for your Colton home.
Not only does poison not have good control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Colton. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil 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 poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Colton tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many ways for gopher control in the past few years in Colton. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in Colton. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are turned 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.
