South El Monte gopher service and Extermination Services
60-Day Guarantee for Gopher and Mole Extermination
Rodent Guys gopher control service for South El Monte gopher service protects properties from the vast damage from gophers. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing South El Monte, CA.
Our normal approach for residential gopher service in South El Monte and commercial gopher removal in South El Monte is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys South El Monte gopher service starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your yard. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our South El Monte gopher service. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Using two different methods such as these offers excellent gopher control in South El Monte allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher service in South El Monte?
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a method alone. Even the professional version of gopher poison 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 South El Monte property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your South El Monte gopher service project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your South El Monte landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow a pest control company serving South El Monte, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. In South El Monte, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows South El Monte people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your South El Monte property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
