Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around for San Clemente.
Our normal approach for gopher trapping for San Clemente, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. 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 low and the danger to your San Clemente dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher trapping starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your San Clemente yard. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in San Clemente. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. Using two types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher trapping in San Clemente, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. 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 technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in San Clemente it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill 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 bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your San Clemente lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving San Clemente try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in San Clemente, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys 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 removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in San Clemente. 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 highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. 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 San Clemente for burrowing animals.
