Rodent Guys gopher trapping service for Compton gopher control protects properties from the devastating damage by gophers. Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Compton, CA.
The typical method for residential gopher control in Compton and commercial gopher removal in Compton is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys Compton gopher control begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your yard. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their positions. 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 the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Compton gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the burrow. Utilizing 2 separate methods such as these gives excellent gopher control in Compton allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in Compton?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method alone. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Compton property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Compton gopher control project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they don’t intend 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 eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Compton property are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let pest control companies serving Compton, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Compton, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Compton people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Compton 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.
