Laguna Nigel 60-day Standard Guarantee for Gopher and Moles
Rodent Guys gopher trapping service protects your Laguna Nigel landscaping from the vast damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around for Laguna Nigel.
The normal approach for gopher trapping for Laguna Nigel, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Laguna Nigel dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher trapping begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Laguna Nigel property. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally 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 removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping in Laguna Nigel. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. Using two types of methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher trapping in Laguna Nigel, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Laguna Nigel it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows if they do not intend 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 wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 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 pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Laguna Nigel lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Laguna Nigel tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Laguna Nigel, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife 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?
We know people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Laguna Nigel. Since we follow our trapping program 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 lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Laguna Nigel for burrowing animals.
