The typical approach for gopher eradication for Yorba Linda, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Yorba Linda dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this our gopher eradication begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Yorba Linda property. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow 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 all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication in Yorba Linda. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the nest. With 2 seperate methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Yorba Linda, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Yorba Linda it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will eject 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 available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Yorba Linda lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt 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 bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving Yorba Linda tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Yorba Linda, CA?
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 control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher problem solved right away in Yorba Linda. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched 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 Yorba Linda for burrowing animals.
