Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of for Cypress.
Our typical method for gopher trapping for Cypress, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Cypress pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher trapping starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Cypress yard. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping in Cypress. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Using 2 types of methods such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher trapping in Cypress, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Cypress it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Cypress yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Cypress try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Cypress, CA?
We have played with many ways for gopher control in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet 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 people want their gopher problem fixed right away in Cypress. When we follow our trapping 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 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 deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate 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 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 Cypress for burrowing animals.
