Rodent Guys gopher removal in Fontana 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher removal Fontana service protects your landscape from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service 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 normal method for your Fontana gopher removal home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our gopher removal begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Fontana home. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically 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 the dead rodents will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal Fontana. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 types of methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not too low for repeatable results for your Fontana landscape.
Not only does poison not get good results it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will push 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 animals) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Fontana. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
Another way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying rodent that consumed the bait. 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 have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow a pest control company serving Fontana tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Fontana. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
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 about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Fontana, California.
