Our typical method for gopher extermination for Huntington Beach, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous 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 Huntington Beach pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our gopher extermination starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Huntington Beach yard. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination in Huntington Beach. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the burrow. With 2 different techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher extermination in Huntington Beach, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Huntington Beach it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Huntington Beach yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating 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 it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Huntington Beach tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Huntington Beach, CA?
We have played with many methods 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. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Huntington Beach. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires 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 burrow. Once the machines are turned 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 Huntington Beach for burrowing animals.
