Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of for Laguna Beach.
The typical approach for gopher extermination for Laguna Beach, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Laguna Beach dogs, cats and children 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 Laguna Beach home. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination in Laguna Beach. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. Using 2 types of methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher extermination in Laguna Beach, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Laguna Beach it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Laguna Beach yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Laguna Beach try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Laguna Beach, CA?
We have played with many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Laguna Beach. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Laguna Beach for burrowing animals.
