Rodent Guys gopher service in Highland 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher service Highland service protects your landscaping from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of.
The typical method for your Highland gopher service home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Based on this our gopher service begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Highland home. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead rodents will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service Highland. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing 2 seperate techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little better but not high enough for your Highland landscape.
Not only does bait not have good results it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Highland. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
Another way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying rodent that ate the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Highland try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years in Highland. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Highland. 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 extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 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. 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 Highland, California.
