Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of for Brea.
Our normal approach for gopher service for Brea, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Brea dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our gopher service starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Brea property. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service in Brea. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the burrow. Using two different methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher service in Brea, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Brea it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows if they do not plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. 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 into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Brea landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. 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 do not let a pest control company serving Brea try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Brea, CA?
We have used many methods for gopher eradication for our customers over the 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 solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Brea. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable 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 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After 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 Brea for burrowing animals.
