Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Carson, CA.
The normal approach for home gopher control in Carson and commercial gopher removal in Carson is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our Carson gopher control begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your yard. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets 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 removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Carson gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. Using two different techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Carson allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher control in Carson?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available 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 Carson property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Carson gopher control project. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows when they do not intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Carson landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming 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 is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Carson, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Carson, 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 remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Carson 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 different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable 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 about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Carson 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 laws for everyone’s safety.
