Rodent Guys gopher extermination service for gopher control Culver City protects landscapes from the extensive damage from gophers. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Culver City.
Our typical approach for gopher control home and commercial gopher removal in Culver City is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous 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 pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this Rodent Guys Culver City gopher control starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your yard. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. Using two seperate control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Culver City allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you use gopher poison in Culver City?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency as a method alone. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children at your Culver City property. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from 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 (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. 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 own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Culver City try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for gopher control Culver City?
We have used many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Culver City, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide in Culver City for gopher control?
We know Culver City customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. 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 eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 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. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
