The normal approach for gopher control for Laguna Woods, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Laguna Woods dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Because of this our gopher control begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Laguna Woods yard. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in Laguna Woods. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Using 2 different techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher control in Laguna Woods, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the commercial version 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 technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Laguna Woods it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. 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 into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Laguna Woods lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
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 pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Laguna Woods try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Laguna Woods, 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 control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Laguna Woods. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method 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 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After 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 Laguna Woods for burrowing animals.
