Rodent Guys gopher control service for Artesia gopher control protects landscapes from the vast damage by gophers. Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Artesia, CA.
The normal approach for home gopher control in Artesia and commercial gopher removal in Artesia is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys Artesia gopher control starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent evidence on your location. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Artesia gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. With two separate techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Artesia allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher control in Artesia?
While many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method by itself. Even the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Artesia property. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Artesia gopher control project. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows when they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly bait. 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 gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Artesia yard are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Artesia, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Artesia, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Artesia people want their gopher problem solved right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Artesia property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
