Rodent Guys gopher service in Fontana 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher service Fontana service protects your landscaping from the devastating damage caused from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the best guarantee of any company around.
Our typical method for your Fontana gopher service home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual 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 animals including predatory birds is great.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher service starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Fontana home. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service Fontana. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. Utilizing 2 seperate control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merley 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better than that but not up to our standards for your Fontana landscape.
Not only does bait not have good results it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Fontana. The tunnels on your landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Fontana try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years in Fontana. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Fontana. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. 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 Fontana, California.
