The typical method for gopher service for Anaheim, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Anaheim dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher service begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Anaheim home. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service in Anaheim. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the nest. With 2 seperate techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher service in Anaheim, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. 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 only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Anaheim it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows if they don’t intend 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 eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Anaheim landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The poison 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Anaheim try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Anaheim, 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 problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved right away in Anaheim. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 around 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 Anaheim for burrowing animals.
