Our typical method for gopher trapping for Aliso Viejo, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison 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 Aliso Viejo dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Instead our gopher trapping begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Aliso Viejo location. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping in Aliso Viejo. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. Using two seperate control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Aliso Viejo, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Aliso Viejo it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Aliso Viejo lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Aliso Viejo tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Aliso Viejo, CA?
We have played with many methods for gopher extermination 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. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved quickly in Aliso Viejo. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Aliso Viejo for burrowing animals.
