Our normal method for residential gopher control in Azusa and commercial gopher removal in Azusa is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Instead Rodent Guys Azusa gopher control starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your yard. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Azusa gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. With 2 separate methods such as these gives great gopher control in Azusa allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in Azusa?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to 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 Azusa property. We have seen with these poisons slightly better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Azusa gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Azusa lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be 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 he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Azusa, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Azusa, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Azusa people want their gopher problem solved quickly. When we follow our trapping 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 eradication.
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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Azusa property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
