Rodent Guys gopher trapping in Ontario 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher trapping Ontario service protects your landscaping from the vast damage from gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
Our typical approach for your Ontario gopher trapping residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher trapping starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Ontario home. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let 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 Ontario. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. With 2 types of methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merley 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but still not high enough for your Ontario property.
Not only does poison not get good results it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Ontario. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The last common 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Ontario tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years in Ontario. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Ontario. When we follow our trapping 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 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Ontario, California.
