Anaheim 60-day Standard Guarantee for Gopher and Moles
Rodent Guys gopher control service protects your Anaheim property from the vast damage caused from gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around for Anaheim.
The typical method for gopher control for Anaheim, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Anaheim dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Instead our gopher control begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Anaheim yard. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in Anaheim. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. Utilizing two different techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher control in Anaheim, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Anaheim it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat 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 deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Anaheim yard are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Anaheim tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Anaheim, CA?
We have played with many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Anaheim. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 and legal in Anaheim for burrowing animals.
