Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around for Dana Point.
The normal method for gopher control for Dana Point, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Dana Point dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher control starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Dana Point yard. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in Dana Point. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. Using two seperate techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher control in Dana Point, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional strength 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. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Dana Point it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Dana Point lawn are 2-8″ below 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 consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving Dana Point try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Dana Point, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher eradication 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 pet safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Dana Point. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Dana Point for burrowing animals.
