Our typical approach for gopher eradication for Stanton, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Stanton dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher eradication starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Stanton location. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers 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 we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication in Stanton. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including any young in the burrow. Using 2 seperate techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher eradication in Stanton, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Stanton it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Stanton lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The other 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 do not allow pest control companies serving Stanton try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Stanton, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways 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 very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem fixed right away in Stanton. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 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 thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Stanton for burrowing animals.
