Our typical approach for gopher removal for Dana Point, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Dana Point dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our gopher removal starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Dana Point home. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in Dana Point. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. With 2 types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher removal in Dana Point, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Dana Point it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Dana Point yard are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. 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 have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Dana Point try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Dana Point, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher control in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed right away in Dana Point. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire 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. After the machines are switched 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 Dana Point for burrowing animals.
