Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of for Newport Beach.
The typical method for gopher service for Newport Beach, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Newport Beach pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher service starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Newport Beach home. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service in Newport Beach. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. Utilizing two seperate techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher service in Newport Beach, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial 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 bit higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Newport Beach it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Newport Beach property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming 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 he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Newport Beach try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Newport Beach, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Newport Beach. Since 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 highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Newport Beach for burrowing animals.
