The typical method for residential gopher control in La Mirada and commercial gopher removal in La Mirada is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys La Mirada gopher control begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your home. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our La Mirada gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. With two different control techniques such as these offers great gopher control in La Mirada allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in La Mirada?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher bait 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 La Mirada property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your La Mirada gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will eject 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 wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your La Mirada lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving La Mirada, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher control in the past few years. In La Mirada, 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 removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know La Mirada people want their gopher problem solved quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 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 deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your La Mirada 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 regulations for your safety.
