Rodent Guys gopher control service protects your Stanton landscape from the extensive damage by gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of for Stanton.

Our normal approach for gopher extermination for Stanton, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Stanton pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.

Based on this our gopher extermination begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Stanton yard. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will  allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination in Stanton. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. With two seperate techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher extermination in Stanton, CA.

Why do you no not use gopher poison?

While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little higher than that but not high enough.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Stanton it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 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 digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Stanton yard are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.

The last 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Stanton try to tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Stanton, CA?

We have used many techniques for gopher eradication 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 pet safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Stanton. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best 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 lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are switched 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 Stanton for burrowing animals.
