Our residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company around for Newport Beach.
The normal method for gopher control for Newport Beach, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Newport Beach dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher control starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Newport Beach property. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in Newport Beach. We will then 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 burrow. With two different techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher control in Newport Beach, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Newport Beach it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 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 poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Newport Beach lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating 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 it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Newport Beach try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Newport Beach, CA?
We have played with many techniques for gopher eradication 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 child safe. No doubt about when you remove 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 fixed quickly in Newport Beach. When we follow our trapping 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 unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Newport Beach for burrowing animals.
