The normal approach for home gopher control in La Habra Heights and commercial gopher removal in La Habra Heights is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys La Habra Heights gopher control starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your property. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. 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 all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our La Habra Heights gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. With two types of methods such as these gives excellent gopher control in La Habra Heights allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher control in La Habra Heights?
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your La Habra Heights property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your La Habra Heights gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your La Habra Heights property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The last 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 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 highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving La Habra Heights, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher control in the past few years. In La Habra Heights, 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. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows La Habra Heights customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since we follow our trapping 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 requires 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your La Habra Heights property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
