Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of for Dana Point.
The typical approach for gopher extermination for Dana Point, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Dana Point dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher extermination starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Dana Point yard. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination in Dana Point. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing two seperate methods such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher extermination in Dana Point, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Dana Point it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Dana Point property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Dana Point tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Dana Point, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher control in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in Dana Point. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
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 around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Dana Point for burrowing animals.
