Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of for Stanton.
Our typical method for gopher control for Stanton, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal 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 Stanton dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher control starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Stanton yard. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Stanton. 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 tunnel including the babies in the nest. With 2 different methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher control in Stanton, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Stanton it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Stanton yard are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The other 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 pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Stanton tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Stanton, CA?
We have used 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 extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Stanton. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched 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 Stanton for burrowing animals.
