Ladera Ranch 60-day Standard Guarantee for Gopher and Moles
Rodent Guys gopher removal service protects your Ladera Ranch landscape from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of for Ladera Ranch.
Our typical method for gopher extermination for Ladera Ranch, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal 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 Ladera Ranch pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our gopher extermination starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Ladera Ranch yard. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination in Ladera Ranch. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Utilizing two different techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher extermination in Ladera Ranch, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Ladera Ranch it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes 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 available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Ladera Ranch lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. 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 own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Ladera Ranch tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Ladera Ranch, 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 removal is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about 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 fixed quickly in Ladera Ranch. 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 best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety and legal in Ladera Ranch for burrowing animals.
