Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. Our approach for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of.
The normal approach for your San Bernardino gopher removal home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Instead our gopher removal starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your San Bernardino yard. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal San Bernardino. 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 burrow including any babies in the burrow. Utilizing 2 types of control techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better than that but not up to our standards for your San Bernardino home.
Not only does poison not have good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in San Bernardino. The tunnels on your landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much 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 ate the bait. The lethal 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving San Bernardino try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?

The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved right away in San Bernardino. 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 San Bernardino, California.
