Rodent Guys gopher control service protects your Newport Beach landscape from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around for Newport Beach.
The normal method for gopher removal for Newport Beach, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Newport Beach dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher removal begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Newport Beach location. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive 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 Newport Beach. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. Utilizing two seperate methods such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher removal in Newport Beach, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Newport Beach it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Newport Beach lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving Newport Beach tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Newport Beach, 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 removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Newport Beach. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 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 lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Newport Beach for burrowing animals.
