Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around for Dana Point.
The typical approach for gopher trapping for Dana Point, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Dana Point dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our gopher trapping begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Dana Point home. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Dana Point. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Using two seperate methods such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher trapping in Dana Point, CA.
Why 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 poison 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 a bit better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Dana Point it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they do not intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Dana Point yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground previously.
The last common 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 dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Dana Point try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Dana Point, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with 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 remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved quickly in Dana Point. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Dana Point for burrowing animals.
