Laguna Nigel 60-day Standard Guarantee for Gopher and Moles
Rodent Guys gopher eradication service protects your Laguna Nigel home from the devastating damage caused from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of for Laguna Nigel.
The normal approach for gopher extermination for Laguna Nigel, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Laguna Nigel pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher extermination starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Laguna Nigel yard. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination in Laguna Nigel. 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 young in the nest. Using 2 seperate methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher extermination in Laguna Nigel, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Laguna Nigel it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they do not intend 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 wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Laguna Nigel landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The poison 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 poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Laguna Nigel tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Laguna Nigel, 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 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 fixed right away in Laguna Nigel. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 burrow. Once the machines are switched 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 Laguna Nigel for burrowing animals.
