Our typical method for gopher trapping for Brea, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Brea dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher trapping begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Brea home. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Brea. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher trapping in Brea, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Brea it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows if they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Brea yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Brea try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Brea, CA?
We have used many methods 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 remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher problem solved right away in Brea. Since 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 best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly 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. 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 Brea for burrowing animals.
