Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company around for Villa Park.
The normal approach for gopher service for Villa Park, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Villa Park pets and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Based on this our gopher service starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Villa Park property. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let 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 Villa Park. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. Using two different methods such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher service in Villa Park, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Villa Park it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 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 bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Villa Park lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The last common 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow a pest control company serving Villa Park try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Villa Park, CA?
We have played with many techniques for gopher control 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 pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed right away in Villa Park. When we follow our trapping program 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 floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs 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. 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 Villa Park for burrowing animals.
