The normal method for gopher eradication for Costa Mesa, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Costa Mesa pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher eradication starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Costa Mesa location. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys 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 Costa Mesa. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. Using 2 seperate control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher eradication in Costa Mesa, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Costa Mesa it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Costa Mesa lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The last 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 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 poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Costa Mesa tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Costa Mesa, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher extermination 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 pet safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Costa Mesa. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies 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 Costa Mesa for burrowing animals.
