The typical approach for residential gopher control in Glendora and commercial gopher removal in Glendora is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys Glendora gopher control begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent evidence on your property. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Glendora 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 any babies in the burrow. Utilizing two separate methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Glendora allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher control in Glendora?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method alone. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Glendora property. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Glendora gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows 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 (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Glendora yard are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming 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 he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving Glendora, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Glendora, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, 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 Glendora people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Glendora 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.
