Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around servicing Pomona, CA.
The typical method for home gopher trapping in Pomona and commercial gopher removal in Pomona is a combination of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our Pomona gopher trapping starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your property. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Pomona gopher trapping. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing two types of methods such as these gives great gopher control in Pomona allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher trapping in Pomona?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method by itself. 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 Pomona property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Pomona gopher trapping project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly 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 consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Pomona lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating 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 is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Pomona, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Pomona, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Pomona people want their gopher problem solved quickly. When 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 eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned 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 devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
