Fullerton 60-day Standard Guarantee for Gopher and Moles
Rodent Guys gopher extermination service protects your Fullerton landscaping from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of for Fullerton.
The normal approach for gopher control for Fullerton, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Fullerton dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher control begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Fullerton yard. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Fullerton. 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 tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Utilizing two different techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher control in Fullerton, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. Even 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 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Fullerton it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another 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 down. The tunnels on your Fullerton landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Fullerton try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Fullerton, CA?
We have played with many methods for gopher control in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Fullerton. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable 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 young in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Fullerton for burrowing animals.
