Rodent Guys gopher service in San Bernardino 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher service San Bernardino service protects your landscape from the extensive damage caused from gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
The typical approach for your San Bernardino gopher service home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher service begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your San Bernardino property. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service San Bernardino. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. With two types of methods such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but not high enough for your San Bernardino home.
Not only does poison not get good control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill 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 poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in San Bernardino. The tunnels on your landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
Another way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming 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 poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving San Bernardino tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years in San Bernardino. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in San Bernardino. 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 best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable 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 around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 San Bernardino, California.
