60-Day Guarantee for Gopher and Mole Extermination
Rodent Guys gopher removal service for Carson gopher trapping protects properties from the vast damage by gophers. Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around servicing Carson, CA.
The typical approach for home gopher trapping in Carson and commercial gopher removal in Carson is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Instead our Carson gopher trapping begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your location. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Carson gopher trapping. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Using 2 separate techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Carson allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher trapping in Carson?
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. Even the professional strength 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 Carson property. We have seen with these poisons a little better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Carson gopher trapping project. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Carson property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The last 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Carson, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher control in the past few years. In Carson, 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. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Carson people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest 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 deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Carson property. People and pets above ground 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.
