Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Cerritos, CA.
The normal approach for residential gopher control in Cerritos and commercial gopher removal in Cerritos is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous 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.
This is why Rodent Guys Cerritos gopher control starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your yard. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Cerritos gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the nest. With two separate techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in Cerritos allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in Cerritos?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Cerritos property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Cerritos gopher control project. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Cerritos yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The other 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Cerritos, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Cerritos, 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 solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Cerritos people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. Since 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 best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Cerritos property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
