Rodent Guys gopher trapping in Alta Loma 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher trapping Alta Loma service protects your landscape from the vast damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of any company around.
Our typical approach for your Alta Loma gopher trapping residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Instead our gopher trapping begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Alta Loma home. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing 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 retrieve the traps all of the dead rodents will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping Alta Loma. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. Utilizing 2 seperate control techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but not up to our standards for your Alta Loma home.
Not only does bait not have good control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they do not intend to consume it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Alta Loma. The tunnels on your landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying rodent that ate the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow pest control companies serving Alta Loma try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years in Alta Loma. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved right away in Alta Loma. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned 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 Alta Loma, California.
