Our normal approach for gopher eradication for Villa Park, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Villa Park dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Instead our gopher eradication begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Villa Park property. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication in Villa Park. 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 burrow including the offspring in the burrow. Using two types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher eradication in Villa Park, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Villa Park it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Villa Park landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The other 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 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 poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Villa Park tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Villa Park, CA?
We have played with many methods for gopher eradication for our customers over the 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. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher problem solved right away in Villa Park. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Villa Park for burrowing animals.
