Rodent Guys gopher service in Alta Loma 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher service Alta Loma service protects your home from the vast damage by gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
Our normal method for your Alta Loma gopher service home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Instead our gopher service begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Alta Loma location. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service Alta Loma. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the burrow. Using 2 different control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher than that but not too low for repeatable results for your Alta Loma property.
Not only does poison not get good results it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Alta Loma. The tunnels on your landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
Another 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 he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Alta Loma tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher eradication for our customers over the years in Alta Loma. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed right away in Alta Loma. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once 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 Alta Loma, California.
