The normal approach for gopher eradication for Tustin, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Tustin pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher eradication starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Tustin home. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher 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 Tustin. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. With 2 different control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher eradication in Tustin, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Tustin it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they do not intend 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 animals) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Tustin landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last common 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving Tustin try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Tustin, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very 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 infestation solved quickly in Tustin. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method 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 unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 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. 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 Tustin for burrowing animals.
