Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Cudahy, CA.
Our normal approach for home gopher control in Cudahy and commercial gopher removal in Cudahy is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Instead our Cudahy gopher control begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent evidence on your location. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Cudahy gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Using 2 types of control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Cudahy allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher control in Cudahy?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a method by itself. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Cudahy property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Cudahy gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly 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 pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Cudahy landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison 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 is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let a pest control company serving Cudahy, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Cudahy, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Cudahy people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate 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 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 about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Cudahy property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
