Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of for Lake Forest.
Our normal approach for gopher removal for Lake Forest, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Lake Forest dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher removal begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Lake Forest location. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in Lake Forest. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. With 2 different techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher removal in Lake Forest, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available 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 method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little higher but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Lake Forest it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows if they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). 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 in roughly 30 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 lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Lake Forest lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The last common 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 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 own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Lake Forest try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Lake Forest, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove 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 right away in Lake Forest. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young 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 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 Lake Forest for burrowing animals.
