Our residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around for Villa Park.
Our normal approach for gopher control for Villa Park, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Villa Park dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this our gopher control begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Villa Park home. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher 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 removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Villa Park. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the burrow. Using 2 types of control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher control in Villa Park, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Villa Park it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t 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 animals) to eat the deadly poison. 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 burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Villa Park property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Villa Park tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Villa Park, 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 removal is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Villa Park. When 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 eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once 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 Villa Park for burrowing animals.
