Our typical approach for gopher control for Ladera Ranch, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Ladera Ranch pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher control begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Ladera Ranch home. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in Ladera Ranch. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. With 2 types of techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher control in Ladera Ranch, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Ladera Ranch it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Ladera Ranch landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Ladera Ranch try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Ladera Ranch, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in Ladera Ranch. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
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 around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After 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 Ladera Ranch for burrowing animals.
