Our normal method for gopher extermination for Aliso Viejo, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Aliso Viejo pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
This is why our gopher extermination begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Aliso Viejo location. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination in Aliso Viejo. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Using 2 seperate control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher extermination in Aliso Viejo, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait 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 method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Aliso Viejo it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Aliso Viejo landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Aliso Viejo try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Aliso Viejo, CA?
We have played with many techniques for gopher eradication 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 wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem solved right away in Aliso Viejo. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Aliso Viejo for burrowing animals.
