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 we are aware of for Yorba Linda.
Our normal method for gopher control for Yorba Linda, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Yorba Linda pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
This is why our gopher control starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Yorba Linda property. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending 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 Yorba Linda. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. With two seperate methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher control in Yorba Linda, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Yorba Linda it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Yorba Linda property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
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 bait. The lethal bait 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Yorba Linda try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Yorba Linda, CA?
We have played with many methods for gopher control for our customers over the 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 solved quickly in Yorba Linda. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 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 young in the nest. After 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 Yorba Linda for burrowing animals.
