Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Pomona, CA.
Our normal method for home gopher service in Pomona and commercial gopher removal in Pomona is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our Pomona gopher service starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your property. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Pomona gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing 2 separate techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Pomona allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher service in Pomona?
Several poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Pomona property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Pomona gopher service project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. 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 down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into 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 landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Pomona, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher control in the past few years. In Pomona, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Pomona people want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method 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 lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Pomona property. 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.
