Rodent Guys gopher service in Montclair 60 Day Guarantee

Rodent Guys gopher service Montclair service protects your home from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of any company around.

The normal method for your Montclair gopher service home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.

Because of this our gopher service starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Montclair yard. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead rodents will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service Montclair. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. With two different techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.

Montclair: What reason do we not bait?

There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. Even the professional version of gopher poison sold to 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 a bit better but not too low for repeatable results for your Montclair landscape.

Not only does poison not get good control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to eat it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.

Another 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 companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Montclair. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.

Another 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 dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow a pest control company serving Montclair try to tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use traps?

Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher extermination for our customers over the years in Montclair. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal 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 solved the issue.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?

Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Montclair. 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 highest 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 deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Montclair, California.
