Lake Forest 60-day Standard Guarantee for Gopher and Moles
Rodent Guys gopher control service protects your Lake Forest landscape from the devastating damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of for Lake Forest.
The normal approach for gopher control for Lake Forest, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Lake Forest pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Based on this our gopher control starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Lake Forest home. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Lake Forest. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. With two different techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher control in Lake Forest, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Lake Forest it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. 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 into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Lake Forest property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The other 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Lake Forest tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Lake Forest, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys 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 wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Lake Forest. 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 unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Lake Forest for burrowing animals.
