The typical method for gopher eradication for Rossmoor, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Rossmoor pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher eradication begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Rossmoor yard. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication in Rossmoor. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Utilizing two different control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Rossmoor, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Rossmoor it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat 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 into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Rossmoor property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Rossmoor tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Rossmoor, CA?
We have used many methods for gopher extermination 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 child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Rossmoor. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires 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 young 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 Rossmoor for burrowing animals.
