Our residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. Our approach for gopher removal with the best guarantee of any company around.

The normal approach for your Montclair gopher trapping residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.

Because of this Rodent Guys gopher trapping starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Montclair location. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using small 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 pick-up the traps the dead rodents will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping Montclair. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 seperate techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.

Montclair: Why do you not poison?

Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merley fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but still not up to our standards for your Montclair landscape.

Not only does poison not have good control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Montclair. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.

The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying rodent that ate the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving Montclair try to tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use traps?

We have used many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years in Montclair. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?

Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved right away in Montclair. Since we follow our trapping 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 requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young 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 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 Montclair, California.
