Rodent Guys gopher trapping in Grand Terrace 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher trapping Grand Terrace service protects your property from the vast damage from gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of any company around.
Our typical approach for your Grand Terrace gopher trapping residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher trapping starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Grand Terrace property. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping Grand Terrace. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. Using two different control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher but not high enough for your Grand Terrace home.
Not only does poison not get good results it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Grand Terrace. The tunnels on your lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
Another common 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 pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Grand Terrace try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years in Grand Terrace. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved right away in Grand Terrace. 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 highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After 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 Grand Terrace, California.
