The normal method for residential gopher control in Huntington Park and commercial gopher removal in Huntington Park is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our Huntington Park gopher control starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your location. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Huntington Park gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Utilizing two different techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Huntington Park allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in Huntington Park?
Several poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Huntington Park property. We have seen with these poisons slightly better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Huntington Park gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. 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 into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Huntington Park landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Huntington Park, 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 extermination in the past few years. In Huntington Park, 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 remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Huntington Park customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Huntington Park 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 laws for your safety.
