The normal method for gopher removal for Laguna Woods, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps 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 poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Laguna Woods dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher removal starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Laguna Woods yard. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in Laguna Woods. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. With 2 seperate control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher removal in Laguna Woods, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Laguna Woods it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Laguna Woods property are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
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 bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet 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 Woods try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Laguna Woods, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher control 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 child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Laguna Woods. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Woods for burrowing animals.
