Rodent Guys gopher control service protects your Laguna Hills landscape from the vast damage caused from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of for Laguna Hills.
Our typical method for gopher control for Laguna Hills, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys 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 limited and the danger to your Laguna Hills pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Based on this our gopher control begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Laguna Hills home. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in Laguna Hills. 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 tunnel including the young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 different methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher control in Laguna Hills, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. 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 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little higher but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Laguna Hills it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Laguna Hills landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The last common 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 he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Laguna Hills tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Laguna Hills, CA?
We have played with many techniques for gopher control 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 child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Laguna Hills. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are turned 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 Laguna Hills for burrowing animals.
