Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company around for San Juan Capistrano.
Our normal method for gopher extermination for San Juan Capistrano, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your San Juan Capistrano dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Instead our gopher extermination starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your San Juan Capistrano location. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their locations. 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 come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination in San Juan Capistrano. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Using 2 types of techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher extermination in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in San Juan Capistrano it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your San Juan Capistrano property are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving San Juan Capistrano tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in San Juan Capistrano, CA?
We have played with many ways for gopher extermination 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 child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem solved quickly in San Juan Capistrano. Since we follow our trapping 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 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 deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After 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 San Juan Capistrano for burrowing animals.
