Rodent Guys gopher removal in Upland 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher removal Upland service protects your landscape 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 anyone around.
Our typical method for your Upland gopher removal home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our gopher removal starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Upland location. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal Upland. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Utilizing 2 different control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Serveral poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but still not too low for repeatable results for your Upland landscape.
Not only does poison not have good results it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal 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 bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Upland. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog 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 pest control companies serving Upland try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years in Upland. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Upland. Since 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 unlivable environment which only requires 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 nest. 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 Upland, California.
