Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around for Irvine.
The typical method for gopher eradication for Irvine, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Irvine dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher eradication begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Irvine home. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven 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 Irvine. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. Using two different methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher eradication in Irvine, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Irvine it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they do not plan 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 consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Irvine lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much 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 ate the poison. 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 own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Irvine try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Irvine, CA?
We have played with many ways for gopher eradication 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 pet safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Irvine. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. 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 Irvine for burrowing animals.
