The normal method for gopher eradication for Laguna Nigel, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Laguna Nigel dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our gopher eradication starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Laguna Nigel property. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication in Laguna Nigel. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Using 2 different techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher eradication in Laguna Nigel, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Laguna Nigel it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Laguna Nigel yard are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he 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 Laguna Nigel try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Laguna Nigel, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher control in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed right away in Laguna Nigel. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Nigel for burrowing animals.
