Rodent Guys gopher trapping in Colton 60-Day Guarantee

Rodent Guys gopher trapping Colton service protects your landscaping from the devastating damage caused from gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of any company around.

The normal method for your Colton gopher trapping residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.

Instead our gopher trapping starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Colton yard. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping Colton. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. Using two different methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.

Colton: The reason to not poison?

While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher but still not too low for repeatable results for your Colton home.

Not only does bait not have good results it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly poison. 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 digs down to the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Colton. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig 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 bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Colton tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use traps?

Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years in Colton. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.

Why use carbon monoxide?

We know people want their gopher infestation solved right away in Colton. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different 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 requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies 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 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 Colton, California.
