Our normal approach for gopher eradication for Fountain Valley, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Fountain Valley pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Based on this our gopher eradication starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Fountain Valley location. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication in Fountain Valley. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using two types of methods such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Fountain Valley, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Fountain Valley it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows 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 (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison. 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 burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Fountain Valley property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
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 lethal bait 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Fountain Valley try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Fountain Valley, CA?
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. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Fountain Valley. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are turned 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 Fountain Valley for burrowing animals.
