Rodent Guys gopher service in Loma Linda 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher service Loma Linda service protects your landscaping from the devastating damage caused from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of.
The typical method for your Loma Linda gopher service home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our gopher service begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Loma Linda location. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking 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 pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service Loma Linda. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Using 2 seperate methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but not up to our standards for your Loma Linda landscape.
Not only does poison not get good results it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Loma Linda. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit 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 poison. The poison 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Loma Linda tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years in Loma Linda. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Loma Linda. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
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 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 Loma Linda, California.
