Hardten Family Vineyards Uses BurrowRx

Hardten Family Vineyards Uses BurrowRx to Defend Their Vineyard

Hardten Family Vineyards is a 13-acre vineyard situated in Napa Valley. David and Christine Hardten are passionate about cabernet. Unfortunately, so are burrowing rodents.

It started when Christine noticed new holes in their perennial garden. They soon knew that those holes would show up in the vineyard. That could mean vine loss if they didn’t act fast.

“We bought the BurrowRx Carbon Monoxide Sprayer about six months ago,” said David. “We tried traps, but they were unsuccessful. We’ve been very pleased with the machine. Christine and I both use it.”

Another reason the Hardten’s bought a BurrowRx was to protect their new pair of nesting owls. They did not want to use poisons for burrowing rodent control, so running the BurrowRx became their go-to solution.

“We find that ground squirrels and gophers are the most destructive,” said David. “The BurrowRx is easy to use, and the smoke oil helps us see how far the tunnels go out. We run it about once a month.”

About BurrowRx

Designated as a pest control device by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), BurrowRx Carbon Monoxide Sprayer is designed to control burrowing and tunneling animals, including gophers, ground squirrels, moles, rats, and prairie dogs. BurrowRx Carbon Monoxide Sprayer uses a smoke oil tracer to show where the carbon monoxide is going in the tunnels. As the carbon monoxide enters the burrow system, the rodent breathes it replacing oxygen in its blood and causing the organs to stop working. The product is unlikely to harm any non-target species because once it completely dissipates, the carbon monoxide is no longer a risk to anything entering the burrow system.
