Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company around for Placentia.
The typical method for gopher removal for Placentia, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Placentia pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher removal starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Placentia yard. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in Placentia. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Utilizing two different control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher removal in Placentia, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Placentia it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat 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 technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Placentia landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Placentia try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Placentia, CA?
We have used many ways 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 extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Placentia. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate 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 unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Placentia for burrowing animals.
