Rodent Guys gopher trapping in Highland 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher trapping Highland service protects your landscape from the vast damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of.
Our typical method for your Highland gopher trapping home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
This is why our gopher trapping begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Highland yard. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping Highland. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the burrow. With two seperate methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merley fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but not high enough for your Highland landscape.
Not only does poison not have good control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other 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 companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Highland. The tunnels on your property are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
Another way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying rodent that ate the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Highland try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years in Highland. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved quickly in Highland. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once 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 Highland, California.
