Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company around for Buena Park.
Our normal approach for gopher trapping for Buena Park, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Buena Park pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher trapping starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Buena Park location. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive 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 Buena Park. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. Utilizing 2 seperate techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Buena Park, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial 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 method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Buena Park it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if 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 wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Buena Park landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil 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 pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Buena Park try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Buena Park, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Buena Park. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies 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 Buena Park for burrowing animals.
