Laguna Hills 60-day Standard Guarantee for Gopher and Moles
Rodent Guys gopher trapping service protects your Laguna Hills property from the vast damage from gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, 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 Laguna Hills.
Our normal approach for gopher trapping for Laguna Hills, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Laguna Hills dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher trapping begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Laguna Hills location. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for 1-7 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 first phase of our gopher trapping in Laguna Hills. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Utilizing two seperate control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Laguna Hills, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. Even the professional strength of gopher poison 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 technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little better but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Laguna Hills it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Laguna Hills property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The other 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Laguna Hills tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Laguna Hills, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys 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 control is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem solved right away in Laguna Hills. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned 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 Laguna Hills for burrowing animals.
