Our normal method for gopher removal for Buena Park, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Buena Park pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Based on this our gopher removal starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Buena Park yard. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in Buena Park. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the nest. Using 2 different techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher removal in Buena Park, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Buena Park it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Buena Park landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet 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 let pest control companies serving Buena Park try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Buena Park, CA?
We have used many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet 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 customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Buena Park. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique 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 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Buena Park for burrowing animals.
