The normal method for gopher eradication for Brea, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Brea dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher eradication starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Brea location. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication in Brea. 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 young in the nest. With 2 different techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Brea, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Brea it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Brea yard are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil 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 poison. 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 own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Brea tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Brea, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Brea. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate 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 unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Brea for burrowing animals.
