The normal approach for gopher trapping for Anaheim, CA residential 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 poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Anaheim dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher trapping begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Anaheim home. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Anaheim. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two types of methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher trapping in Anaheim, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Anaheim it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows when they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Anaheim landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The bait 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 poiosn and don’t allow a pest control company serving Anaheim try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Anaheim, CA?
We have used many ways for gopher eradication 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 wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Anaheim. When 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 highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable 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 about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Anaheim for burrowing animals.
