Seal Beach 60-day Standard Guarantee for Gopher and Moles
Rodent Guys gopher trapping service protects your Seal Beach landscape from the vast damage from gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of for Seal Beach.
Our normal method for gopher trapping for Seal Beach, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Seal Beach dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Instead our gopher trapping begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Seal Beach home. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping in Seal Beach. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing two seperate methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Seal Beach, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Seal Beach it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows if they do not plan 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 eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Seal Beach landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The poison 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow a pest control company serving Seal Beach try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Seal Beach, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods 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 pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Seal Beach. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 young in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Seal Beach for burrowing animals.
