Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of for Laguna Nigel.
The normal approach for gopher control for Laguna Nigel, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Laguna Nigel pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher control begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Laguna Nigel location. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying 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 Laguna Nigel. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. Utilizing 2 types of control techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher control in Laguna Nigel, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Laguna Nigel it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Laguna Nigel landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Laguna Nigel try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Laguna Nigel, CA?
We have played with many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem solved right away in Laguna Nigel. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After 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 Laguna Nigel for burrowing animals.
