The typical approach for gopher trapping for La Habra, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your La Habra dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our gopher trapping begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your La Habra property. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping in La Habra. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. With 2 types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher trapping in La Habra, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in La Habra it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly bait. 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 tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your La Habra landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil 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 poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving La Habra tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in La Habra, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys 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 extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed right away in La Habra. Since 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 highest 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 La Habra for burrowing animals.
