Rodent Guys gopher control service for Calabasas gopher control protects properties from the devastating damage from gophers. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Calabasas, CA.
Our typical approach for home gopher control in Calabasas and commercial gopher removal in Calabasas is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Based on this our Calabasas gopher control begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent evidence on your property. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Calabasas gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. Using 2 different techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Calabasas allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in Calabasas?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. Even the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Calabasas property. We have noticed with these poisons a little better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Calabasas gopher control project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly 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 into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Calabasas landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog 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 allow pest control companies serving Calabasas, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Calabasas, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Calabasas people want their gopher problem fixed right away. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Calabasas 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 laws for your safety.
