Rodent Guys gopher control Corona service protects your property from the devastating damage by gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control Corona with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
Our typical method for gopher control Corona, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher control Corona starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Corona home. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control Corona. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two types of techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use gopher poison]?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers in Corona, Ca but few of them work effectively. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having good results for gopher extermination it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal poison on your Corona home. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another 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 technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Corona. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. 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 pest control companies serving Corona try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years in Corona. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication in Corona.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 for use in Corona, Ca.
