Our normal method for gopher eradication for Aliso Viejo, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison 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 Aliso Viejo dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Instead our gopher eradication starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Aliso Viejo home. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven 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 out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication in Aliso Viejo. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. With 2 different techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Aliso Viejo, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Aliso Viejo it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Aliso Viejo yard are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
The last common 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Aliso Viejo try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Aliso Viejo, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used 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 extremely well and is wildlife 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?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Aliso Viejo. 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 extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. 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 Aliso Viejo for burrowing animals.
