The typical approach for gopher extermination for Anaheim, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Anaheim dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Because of this our gopher extermination begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Anaheim property. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing 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 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 extermination in Anaheim. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 seperate techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher extermination in Anaheim, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Anaheim it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Anaheim yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
The other 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Anaheim tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Anaheim, CA?
We have used many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Anaheim. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young 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 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 Anaheim for burrowing animals.
