Rodent Guys gopher trapping in Upland 60-Day Guarantee
Rodent Guys gopher trapping Upland service protects your landscaping from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. Our approach for gopher removal with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
The typical method for your Upland gopher trapping residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Based on this our gopher trapping begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Upland location. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead rodents will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping Upland. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Using two different techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison 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 method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher but not too low for repeatable results for your Upland landscape.
Not only does poison not have good results it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Upland. The tunnels on your landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying rodent that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Upland try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher control in the past few years in Upland. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in Upland. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest 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 deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Upland, California.
