Our residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around servicing Diamond Bar, CA.
Our typical approach for residential gopher control in Diamond Bar and commercial gopher removal in Diamond Bar is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our Diamond Bar gopher control begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your home. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Diamond Bar 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 any babies in the burrow. With two separate methods such as these gives excellent gopher control in Diamond Bar allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in Diamond Bar?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method alone. Even the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Diamond Bar property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Diamond Bar gopher control project. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Diamond Bar lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by eating 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 it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Diamond Bar, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Diamond Bar, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Diamond Bar people want their gopher problem solved right away. When we follow our trapping program 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 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 lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Diamond Bar 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 regulations for everyone’s safety.
