We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Commerce, CA.
Our normal method for residential gopher control in Commerce and commercial gopher removal in Commerce is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
This is why our Commerce gopher control starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your location. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Commerce 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 tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. With 2 separate techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Commerce allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in Commerce?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Commerce property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Commerce gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Commerce yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow a pest control company serving Commerce, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Commerce, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Commerce customers want their gopher problem solved right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Commerce property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
