Rodent Guys gopher extermination service protects your Villa Park property from the extensive damage by gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around for Villa Park.
Our normal approach for gopher extermination for Villa Park, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Villa Park dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher extermination begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Villa Park property. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination in Villa Park. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Utilizing two types of methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher extermination in Villa Park, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait sold to 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. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Villa Park it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Villa Park property are 2-8″ down 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 ate the bait. The bait 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 don’t allow pest control companies serving Villa Park tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Villa Park, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child 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?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Villa Park. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring 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 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 Villa Park for burrowing animals.
