Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher removal with the best guarantee of any company around.
Our typical method for your Loma Linda gopher removal residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Instead our gopher removal starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Loma Linda property. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven 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 pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal Loma Linda. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. With two seperate techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Serveral poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but not high enough for your Loma Linda property.
Not only does poison not get good control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 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 poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Loma Linda. The tunnels on your lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The other 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 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 highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Loma Linda try to 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 eradication in the past few years in Loma Linda. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Loma Linda. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young 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 Loma Linda, California.
