Rodent Guys gopher control service protects your Orange home from the devastating damage from gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around for Orange.
The typical approach for gopher extermination for Orange, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Orange dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher extermination begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Orange yard. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow 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 all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination in Orange. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. Utilizing two different methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher extermination in Orange, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the professional strength of gopher poison 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 little higher but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Orange it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows if they do not intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Orange landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The last 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 dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Orange try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Orange, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Orange. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
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 deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate 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 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 Orange for burrowing animals.
