A rat infestation can spread into your home or office. Rats are a major pest problem in the Big Bear area. They take harbor age in attics, basements and crawl spaces. Rats can get into small spaces through vents, open doors and spaces left by contractors when homes are built. Rodent Guys exterminates rats wherever they are nesting. We find their entry points so we know where to set traps and where to seal up entry points. We make recommendations of how to reduce rodents in the future and give price quotes for the current infestation. We want to make rats not be able to gain entry in the future.

Get Rid of Gophers

Big Bear or Lake Arrowhead Gopher

Pocket Gopher

Gophers are the hardest rodent for homeowners to taker care of on their own.  Homeowners find out poisons do not work, traps are hard to figure out and running water down the hole just wastes water.  Rodent Guys started out years ago as a gopher company.  Being this was the only pest owner Nick Nielsen controlled back then, he became very proficient at it.  His techniques have been passed down to his children who work for him as well as his other technicians.

The Rodent Guys normal gopher control methods do not use any poison and is pet safe.  The pet safe method involves using gopher traps and carbon monoxide gas treatments.  Traps are placed into the tunnels where the gopher will run into them.  The carbon monoxide gas is injected into the tunnel and pushes out available oxygen.  Both methods are proven gopher removal techniques devolved and used by Rodent Guys on residential and commercial properties as well as schools, parks and golf courses.  Please go to our gopher extermination page for more information.

Get Rid of Moles

Mole Removal

Trapped Mole

Moles dig in the dirt similar to gophers.  Their tunnels can be seen from the surface unlike gophers who only pop up mounds with no visible tunnel.  Moles are not rodents and are harder to control than gophers and rats.  They make long tunnels in search for food.  They eat bugs like worms, ants, grubs or other insects they find in their tunnel system.  Mole are rarely seen outside of their tunnels.  Rodent Guys Pest Control treatments for moles can include trapping, bait and carbon monoxide.  For more information see our page about mole removal.

Get Rid of Squirrels

Ground Squirrel

Rodent Guys deals with both tree and ground squirrels.  Ground squirrel control is normally done with trapping and carbon monoxide gas.  The traps are placed outside near the squirrels burrow in the ground.  The squirrels are lured into the traps using bait.  After squirrels are trapped they are removed off the property.  The carbon monoxide gas is injected into the burrow which suffocates any squirrel in the burrow at time of treatment.

Tree squirrels do not burrow in the ground.  Therefore carbon monoxide is not used on them.  Instead traps are placed for the squirrels to go inside of.  We use a combination of live and lethal traps for tree squirrels.  Please note there are two kinds of tree squirrels in the Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead areas.  One is a grey squirrel and the other is redish brown squirrel.  The grey squirrel is protected and requires a depredation permit from the state to remove.  The redish brown, aka Eastern Fox Squirrel, is a pest and can be dealt with without a permit.  Please see our squirrel control page for more information.
