Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other animals. Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of for Stanton.
Our typical method for gopher service for Stanton, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Stanton pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our gopher service begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Stanton yard. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service in Stanton. 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 tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. Utilizing 2 types of techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher service in Stanton, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Stanton it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Stanton landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Stanton tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Stanton, 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 removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Stanton. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After 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 Stanton for burrowing animals.
