Rodent Guys gopher control service protects your Brea landscape from the extensive damage caused from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around for Brea.
Our normal approach for gopher control for Brea, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Brea dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher control starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Brea property. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in Brea. 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 young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 different techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher control in Brea, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Brea it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Brea landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Brea try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Brea, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher eradication 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. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem solved right away in Brea. When we follow our trapping program 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 floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety and legal in Brea for burrowing animals.
