Rodent Guys gopher eradication service for Glendale gopher control protects landscapes from the extensive damage caused from gophers. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Glendale, CA.
The typical method for residential gopher control in Glendale and commercial gopher removal in Glendale is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Instead our Glendale gopher control starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your home. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Glendale gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using 2 different control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in Glendale allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher control in Glendale?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Glendale property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Glendale gopher control project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Glendale landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil 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 he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Glendale, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Glendale, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Glendale people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Glendale property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
