The normal approach for gopher removal for Laguna Beach, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Laguna Beach dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher removal starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Laguna Beach property. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal in Laguna Beach. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher removal in Laguna Beach, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
While many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Laguna Beach it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Laguna Beach yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The poison 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 don’t allow a pest control company serving Laguna Beach tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Laguna Beach, 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 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 problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Laguna Beach. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate 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 requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Laguna Beach for burrowing animals.
