Our normal method for gopher extermination for Fountain Valley, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Fountain Valley dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher extermination starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Fountain Valley location. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination in Fountain Valley. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. With two different control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher extermination in Fountain Valley, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait 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 noticed with these poisons slightly higher than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Fountain Valley it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Fountain Valley landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. 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 own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Fountain Valley tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Fountain Valley, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways 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 child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Fountain Valley. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Fountain Valley for burrowing animals.
