Rodent Guys gopher removal in Montclair 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher removal Montclair service protects your property from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of.
The typical method for your Montclair gopher removal home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Instead our gopher removal begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Montclair location. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead rodents will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal Montclair. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. Using two seperate methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merley 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but not too low for repeatable results for your Montclair landscape.
Not only does poison not have good results it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Montclair. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying rodent that ate the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Montclair tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years in Montclair. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Montclair. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned 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 Montclair, California.
