Rodent Guys gopher removal Redlands service protects your property from the extensive damage by gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the best guarantee of any company around.
The normal approach for your Redlands gopher removal residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this our gopher removal starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Redlands property. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal Redlands. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including any babies in the burrow. Using 2 types of methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merley 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little better but not up to our standards for your Redlands landscape.
Not only does bait not get good results it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Redlands. The tunnels on your landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The other common 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Redlands try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years in Redlands. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Redlands. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Redlands, California.
