Rodent Guys gopher trapping service for Rolling Hills gopher service protects properties from the devastating damage caused from gophers. Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Rolling Hills, CA.
The normal method for home gopher service in Rolling Hills and commercial gopher removal in Rolling Hills is combined with trapping 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 pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Instead our Rolling Hills gopher service begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your home. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Rolling Hills gopher service. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. Utilizing two different techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Rolling Hills allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher service in Rolling Hills?
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Rolling Hills property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Rolling Hills gopher service project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). 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. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Rolling Hills yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal 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 highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Rolling Hills, CA tell you it is safe – its 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 Rolling Hills, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Rolling Hills people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Rolling Hills property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
