The typical approach for gopher service for Placentia, 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 bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Placentia pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Instead our gopher service begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Placentia property. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service in Placentia. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the burrow. Utilizing two types of techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher service in Placentia, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Placentia it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to consume 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 bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly 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 gets into the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Placentia yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Placentia try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Placentia, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques 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 removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved right away in Placentia. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique 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 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young 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 gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety and legal in Placentia for burrowing animals.
