Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of for Santa Ana.
Our normal approach for gopher removal for Santa Ana, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Santa Ana pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
This is why our gopher removal starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Santa Ana yard. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive 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 Santa Ana. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Using 2 types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher removal in Santa Ana, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Santa Ana it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Santa Ana property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Santa Ana try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Santa Ana, CA?
We have used many techniques for gopher control in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Santa Ana. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Santa Ana for burrowing animals.
