Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around for Cypress.
The typical approach for gopher control for Cypress, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Cypress pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our gopher control starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Cypress location. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Cypress. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. With two different techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher control in Cypress, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Cypress it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Cypress lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The last 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving Cypress try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Cypress, CA?
We have played with many methods for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher problem solved quickly in Cypress. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
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 around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Cypress for burrowing animals.
