The typical method for gopher eradication for Laguna Hills, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Laguna Hills dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Based on this our gopher eradication starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Laguna Hills property. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication in Laguna Hills. We will then 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 offspring in the burrow. With two types of techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Laguna Hills, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Laguna Hills it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume 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 into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Laguna Hills property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Laguna Hills try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Laguna Hills, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher control 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 wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Laguna Hills. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies 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 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 Laguna Hills for burrowing animals.
