Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around servicing Hermosa Beach, CA.
Our typical method for residential gopher control in Hermosa Beach and commercial gopher removal in Hermosa Beach is dual process of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our Hermosa Beach gopher control begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your property. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Hermosa Beach gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the burrow. Using two types of techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Hermosa Beach allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in Hermosa Beach?
Several poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. This includes the commercial strength 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 Hermosa Beach property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Hermosa Beach gopher control project. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Hermosa Beach landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait 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 is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow pest control companies serving Hermosa Beach, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher control in the past few years. In Hermosa Beach, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Hermosa Beach people want their gopher problem solved right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Hermosa Beach property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
