Rodent Guys gopher trapping in Redlands 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher trapping Redlands service protects your landscape from the extensive damage by gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
The normal method for your Redlands gopher trapping home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher trapping starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Redlands yard. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing 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 pick-up the traps the dead rodents will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping Redlands. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. Utilizing 2 different methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional strength of gopher bait available 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. We have noticed with these poisons a little better than that but still not up to our standards for your Redlands home.
Not only does poison not get good control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to eat it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Redlands. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
Another way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving Redlands try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years in Redlands. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed right away in Redlands. 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 eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young 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 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 Redlands, California.
