The normal method for gopher removal for Trabuco Canyon, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Trabuco Canyon dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our gopher removal starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Trabuco Canyon property. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in Trabuco Canyon. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the nest. Utilizing two types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher removal in Trabuco Canyon, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Trabuco Canyon it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows if they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Trabuco Canyon landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. 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 poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving Trabuco Canyon tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Trabuco Canyon, CA?
We have used many methods 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. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Trabuco Canyon. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
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 thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. 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 Trabuco Canyon for burrowing animals.
