60-Day Guarantee for Gopher and Mole Extermination
Rodent Guys gopher extermination service for Pomona gopher control protects landscapes from the extensive damage from gophers. Our residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around servicing Pomona, CA.
Our normal approach for residential gopher control in Pomona and commercial gopher removal in Pomona is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys Pomona gopher control begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent evidence on your property. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow 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 gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Pomona gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the nest. Utilizing two types of techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Pomona allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher control in Pomona?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Pomona property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Pomona gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) 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 technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Pomona lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let pest control companies serving Pomona, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Pomona, 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. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Pomona customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable 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 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Pomona property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
