Rodent Guys gopher control service for Claremont gopher control protects homes from the devastating damage from gophers. Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Claremont, CA.
Our typical method for home gopher control in Claremont and commercial gopher removal in Claremont is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys Claremont gopher control starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your home. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Claremont gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. Utilizing two types of methods such as these gives great gopher control in Claremont allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher control in Claremont?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Claremont property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Claremont gopher control project. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Claremont lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The 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 do not allow pest control companies serving Claremont, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Claremont, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Claremont customers want their gopher problem solved right away. 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 eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable 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 around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Claremont property. 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 laws for your safety.
