The typical method for gopher removal for Cypress, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Cypress pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Because of this our gopher removal begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Cypress yard. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal in Cypress. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. With 2 different techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher removal in Cypress, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Cypress it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Cypress yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig 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 consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Cypress try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Cypress, CA?
We have played with many ways 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 very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Cypress. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are switched 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 Cypress for burrowing animals.
