Rodent Guys gopher removal Grand Terrace service protects your property from the vast damage caused from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone around.
The typical method for your Grand Terrace gopher removal residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher removal begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Grand Terrace yard. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead rodents will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal Grand Terrace. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Using 2 seperate techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merley fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher than that but not too low for repeatable results for your Grand Terrace property.
Not only does poison not get good control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another 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 technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Grand Terrace. The tunnels on your landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
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 own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving Grand Terrace tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years in Grand Terrace. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Grand Terrace. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique 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 deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Grand Terrace, California.
