The normal method for residential gopher control in Arcadia and commercial gopher removal in Arcadia is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Based on this Rodent Guys Arcadia gopher control begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent evidence on your location. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation. When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Arcadia gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two different control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Arcadia allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher control in Arcadia?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method by itself. Even the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Arcadia property. We have noticed with these poisons a little better but not up to our standards. Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Arcadia gopher control project. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows if they don’t intend to consume 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 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 digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Arcadia yard are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously. The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming 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 own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Arcadia, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Arcadia, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Arcadia people want their gopher problem solved right away. 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 highest chances of full gopher eradication. The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Arcadia property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
