Rodent Guys gopher removal service protects your Stanton landscaping from the vast damage by gophers and moles. Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of for Stanton.

Our typical method for gopher trapping for Stanton, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Stanton dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.

Because of this our gopher trapping begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Stanton property. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will  allow the gopher 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 all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Stanton. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. Using 2 types of control techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher trapping in Stanton, CA.

The reason to not not use gopher poison?

Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial 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 than that but still not high enough.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Stanton it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.

The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Stanton lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.

The last common 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Stanton tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use traps for removing gophers in Stanton, CA?

Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife 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?

Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Stanton. Since 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 eradication.

The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched 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 Stanton for burrowing animals.
