Our normal approach for residential gopher control in Hidden Hills and commercial gopher removal in Hidden Hills is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Based on this Rodent Guys Hidden Hills gopher control starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your home. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Hidden Hills 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 young in the nest. Using two types of techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Hidden Hills allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in Hidden Hills?
There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method alone. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Hidden Hills property. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Hidden Hills gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Hidden Hills landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. 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 have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow a pest control company serving Hidden Hills, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many methods for gopher control in the past few years. In Hidden Hills, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Hidden Hills people want their gopher problem solved quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
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 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 from the gopher tunnels of your Hidden Hills property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
