Our typical method for gopher extermination for Placentia, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Placentia pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
This is why our gopher extermination begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Placentia home. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come 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 Placentia. 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 tunnel including the babies in the nest. With 2 seperate methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher extermination in Placentia, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen 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 Placentia it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Placentia lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The last 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 dog 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 Placentia tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Placentia, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher control in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Placentia. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After 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 Placentia for burrowing animals.
