Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around for Los Alamitos.
Our typical method for gopher eradication for Los Alamitos, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Los Alamitos dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our gopher eradication begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Los Alamitos property. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication in Los Alamitos. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 different techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher eradication in Los Alamitos, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Los Alamitos it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Los Alamitos yard are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The last common 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 bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Los Alamitos tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Los Alamitos, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher control 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. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed right away in Los Alamitos. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Los Alamitos for burrowing animals.
