Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around for Laguna Hills.
Our typical method for gopher removal for Laguna Hills, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Laguna Hills dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher removal begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Laguna Hills location. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in Laguna Hills. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the nest. With two seperate control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher removal in Laguna Hills, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
While many poisons are manufactured 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 merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Laguna Hills it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Laguna Hills landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt 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 poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Laguna Hills try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Laguna Hills, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods 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 pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved right away in Laguna Hills. Since 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 fills 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 lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once 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 Hills for burrowing animals.
