Rodent Guys gopher trapping in Fontana 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher trapping Fontana service protects your home from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of anyone around.
Our typical approach for your Fontana gopher trapping residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher trapping begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Fontana location. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping Fontana. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. With two seperate techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merley fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results for your Fontana property.
Not only does poison not get good control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Fontana. The tunnels on your landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground previously.
Another common 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving Fontana tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher control in the past few years in Fontana. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Fontana. When we follow our trapping program 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 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 lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. 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 Fontana, California.
