Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of for Garden Grove.
Our typical approach for gopher extermination for Garden Grove, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Garden Grove pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher extermination starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Garden Grove location. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination in Garden Grove. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. With 2 seperate control techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher extermination in Garden Grove, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Garden Grove it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will eject 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 available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Garden Grove yard are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot 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 consumed the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Garden Grove try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Garden Grove, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved quickly in Garden Grove. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 unlivable 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 about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Garden Grove for burrowing animals.
