Our residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around for Westminster.
The typical approach for gopher service for Westminster, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Westminster pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our gopher service begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Westminster yard. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven 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 Westminster. 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 the offspring in the burrow. Using two types of methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher service in Westminster, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Westminster it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Westminster landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Westminster try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Westminster, CA?
We have used 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 very 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 customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Westminster. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned 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 Westminster for burrowing animals.
