Seal Beach 60-day Standard Guarantee for Gopher and Moles
Rodent Guys gopher trapping service protects your Seal Beach home from the extensive damage by gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around for Seal Beach.
The normal method for gopher control for Seal Beach, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Seal Beach pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Instead our gopher control starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Seal Beach home. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in Seal Beach. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. Using two types of control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher control in Seal Beach, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional version of gopher bait 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 better than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Seal Beach it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they do not intend 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 consume the lethal bait. 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 down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Seal Beach property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait 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 poiosn and don’t allow a pest control company serving Seal Beach try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Seal Beach, CA?
We have played with many methods 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 wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Seal Beach. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once 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 Seal Beach for burrowing animals.
