Corona Gopher Control Specialty Company Changes Tactics for Ground Squirrel Control After Poison No Longer Available

Rodent Guys Gopher Control and Removal says squirrel trapping and carbon monoxide now the preferred method.

Corona, CA (PRWEB) July 10, 2013

Rodent Guys Gopher Extermination Company is the local gopher control company for Corona, CA who specializes in gophers, moles and squirrels. Rodent Guys promotes low toxic methods for controlling burrowing animals in Corona such as ground squirrels and pocket gophers.

Rodent Guys does offer poison methods for pests but normally only uses them at customer requests. Ground Squirrels are normally trapped by Rodent Guys for initial clean-outs and then maintained by bait boxes with PCQ in the stations.

As of May 2013 the PCQ bait manufacture used by Rodent Guys, Bell Labs, is no longer making this squirrel bait which was twice as strong as other baits and less than half the cost. The increased cost of the bait that is now available on top of being half strength makes this available bait 4-5 times more costly us use. It is unclear if replacement bait will be manufactured and if it is it will have to go through an approval process with the state which will take quite a bit of time.

Because Rodent Guys promotes low usage of poisons for gophers, moles and squirrels, they are suggesting customers should consider the use of traps as a replacement. Traps are safer for pets and non-target wildlife. They are also efficient at trapping out the population.

Rodent Guys Gopher Control Service traps squirrels with both live and lethal traps. Both options have pros and cons with the same goal of reducing ground squirrel populations. Because monthly control with trapping squirrels may be costly they have an alternative method. The initial clean-out can be done with traps and monthly control with gassing of the tunnels.

The gassing of the tunnels also has pros and cons. On the upside, the gassing leaves no residual behind and is safe for pets and non-target wildlife. The animals also stay in the tunnel so you have no dead rodents above ground to deal with like you can using poisons. Over time this method helps to reduce populations. The drawback to this method is if the ground squirrels are not in the tunnel system at time of treatment they will not be affected by the gas.
