Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around for Cypress.
Our typical method for gopher extermination for Cypress, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Cypress pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this our gopher extermination begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Cypress location. Most traps are placed 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 Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination in Cypress. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. With two seperate methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher extermination in Cypress, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes 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 better but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Cypress it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Cypress landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The 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 bait and do not let pest control companies serving Cypress tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Cypress, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques 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 very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Cypress. Since 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 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Cypress for burrowing animals.
