Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control Norco with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
Our normal method for gopher removal Norco, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of 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 bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
This is why our gopher removal Norco starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Norco home. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal Norco. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. With two seperate methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use gopher poison]?
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers in Norco, Ca but few of them work well. This includes the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good results for gopher extermination it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal poison on your Norco property. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Norco. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Norco tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years in Norco. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication in Norco.
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 deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After 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 for use in Norco, Ca.
