Our typical approach for gopher service for Aliso Viejo, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Aliso Viejo pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our gopher service begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Aliso Viejo location. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service in Aliso Viejo. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. Using 2 different methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher service in Aliso Viejo, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial version 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 technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Aliso Viejo it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they do not plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Aliso Viejo landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The last common 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 dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Aliso Viejo try to tell you it is safe – its not.
