The normal method for residential gopher control in Culver City and commercial gopher removal in Culver City is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Based on this our Culver City gopher control begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your home. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Culver City gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the nest. With two different control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Culver City allowing us to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher control in Culver City?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Culver City property. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Culver City gopher control project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. 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 burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Culver City landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Culver City, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher extermination in the past few 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 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 Culver City customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 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 thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Culver City property. 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 regulations for everyone’s safety.
