Gopher Control needed from gopher mound

Gopher Mound

The normal method for gopher service Riverside, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. 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 low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.

Because of this our gopher service  Riverside begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Riverside location. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service Riverside. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. With 2 seperate methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.


The reason to not use gopher poison]?

Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers in Riverside, Ca but few of them have good control. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be mearly fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little higher but still not high enough.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison on your Riverside property. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.

The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Riverside. The tunnels on your lawn 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 bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Riverside tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use traps?

Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years in Riverside. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.

Reason for using carbon monoxide?

We know people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping program 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 in Riverside.

The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly 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 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 Riverside, Ca.
