Our normal method for gopher eradication for Huntington Beach, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Huntington Beach pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
This is why our gopher eradication starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Huntington Beach property. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication in Huntington Beach. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any babies in the burrow. Using 2 types of methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Huntington Beach, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. 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 up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Huntington Beach it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Huntington Beach property are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Huntington Beach tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Huntington Beach, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Huntington Beach. 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 extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Huntington Beach for burrowing animals.
