Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around servicing La Puente, CA.
The typical method for residential gopher control in La Puente and commercial gopher removal in La Puente is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this our La Puente gopher control starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your yard. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our La Puente gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using two different techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in La Puente allowing us to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in La Puente?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method by itself. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your La Puente property. We have seen with these poisons a little better but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your La Puente gopher control project. At times gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your La Puente property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. 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 own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving La Puente, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many methods for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In La Puente, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is 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 La Puente people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 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 La Puente property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
