Rodent Guys gopher service in Grand Terrace 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher service Grand Terrace service protects your home from the devastating damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
The typical approach for your Grand Terrace gopher service home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual 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 pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our gopher service begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Grand Terrace yard. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service Grand Terrace. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. Using two seperate techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merley fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but still not up to our standards for your Grand Terrace landscape.
Not only does bait not have good results it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows if they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Grand Terrace. 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 way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying rodent that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Grand Terrace try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years in Grand Terrace. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Grand Terrace. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate 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 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 thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched 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 Grand Terrace, California.
