The typical method for residential gopher control in Bellflower and commercial gopher removal in Bellflower is dual process of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this our Bellflower gopher control starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your location. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Bellflower 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 offspring in the nest. Using two types of techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Bellflower allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher control in Bellflower?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method alone. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Bellflower property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Bellflower gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Bellflower lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The last 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 pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Bellflower, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many methods for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Bellflower, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Bellflower customers want their gopher problem solved quickly. 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 eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires 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 nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Bellflower 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 regulations for your safety.
