Our typical method for gopher service for Huntington Beach, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Huntington Beach pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher service begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Huntington Beach yard. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service in Huntington Beach. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. Utilizing 2 seperate techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher service in Huntington Beach, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Huntington Beach it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Huntington Beach yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The other common 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 dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Huntington Beach try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Huntington Beach, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher extermination 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 child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Huntington Beach. When we follow our trapping program 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 extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned 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 Huntington Beach for burrowing animals.
