Our residential service 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 anyone around.
The typical method for your Ontario gopher removal home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to 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 high.
Instead our gopher removal begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Ontario property. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead rodents will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal Ontario. 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 tunnel including the young in the nest. Utilizing two seperate methods such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merley fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but still not too low for repeatable results for your Ontario home.
Not only does poison not have good results it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Ontario. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ below 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 consumed 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 have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Ontario tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years in Ontario. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know people want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Ontario. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young 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 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 Ontario, California.
