Our typical approach for gopher removal for Costa Mesa, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination 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 poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Costa Mesa dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher removal begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Costa Mesa home. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal in Costa Mesa. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Utilizing 2 different methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher removal in Costa Mesa, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Costa Mesa it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Costa Mesa property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The bait 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 bait and do not let pest control companies serving Costa Mesa try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Costa Mesa, CA?
We have played with many techniques 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 issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Costa Mesa. 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 extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Costa Mesa for burrowing animals.
