Rodent Guys gopher trapping in Rialto 60 Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher trapping Rialto service protects your landscaping from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher removal with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
The typical method for your Rialto gopher trapping residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or poison similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher trapping starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Rialto location. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead rodents will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping Rialto. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. Using two seperate methods such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Serveral poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but still not high enough for your Rialto home.
Not only does bait not get good results it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat 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 down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Rialto. The tunnels on your lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
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 poison. The poison 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Rialto tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years in Rialto. 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 remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know customers want their gopher problem fixed right away in Rialto. 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 highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. 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 Rialto, California.
