Our residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around for Anaheim.
The typical method for gopher removal for Anaheim, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Anaheim dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher removal begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Anaheim home. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in Anaheim. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Utilizing two seperate techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher removal in Anaheim, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Anaheim it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Anaheim landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The other 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 dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Anaheim tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Anaheim, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Anaheim. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable 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 around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Anaheim for burrowing animals.
