Our residential treatment for gophers has 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 any company we are aware of for Brea.
The typical approach for gopher removal for Brea, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Brea pets and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our gopher removal starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Brea yard. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in Brea. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. Using 2 types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher removal in Brea, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Brea it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly 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 into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Brea yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Brea try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Brea, CA?
We have used many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Brea. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best 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 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. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Brea for burrowing animals.
