Rodent Guys gopher service in Colton 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher service Colton service protects your landscape from the vast damage by gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone around.
The normal method for your Colton gopher service home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher service begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Colton yard. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead rodents will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service Colton. After the trapping we will 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 burrow. Using 2 types of methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Various 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 reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little better than that but not up to our standards for your Colton property.
Not only does poison not have good results it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they do not plan 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. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Colton. The tunnels on your landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The last 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 dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Colton tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years in Colton. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved right away in Colton. Since we follow our trapping program 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 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 around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Colton, California.
