Rodent Guys gopher control service for Burbank gopher control protects homes from the vast damage by gophers. Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around servicing Burbank, CA.
The typical approach for home gopher control in Burbank and commercial gopher removal in Burbank is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys Burbank gopher control begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent evidence on your home. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Burbank gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using 2 separate techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Burbank allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher control in Burbank?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. This includes the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Burbank property. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Burbank gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows if they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Burbank yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Burbank, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Burbank, 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 removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Burbank customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different 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 unlivable environment which only requires 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Burbank property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
