The normal method for residential gopher control in Bell and commercial gopher removal in Bell is a combination of traps 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 low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys Bell gopher control starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your property. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Bell gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing two types of techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Bell allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher control in Bell?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Bell property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Bell gopher control project. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows if they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Bell lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The other common 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 bait and do not let pest control companies serving Bell, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Bell, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Bell people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
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 about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Bell property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
