Our residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around servicing La Verne, CA.
The typical method for home gopher control in La Verne and commercial gopher removal in La Verne is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our La Verne gopher control starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your yard. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our La Verne gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. Utilizing 2 different control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in La Verne allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher control in La Verne?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your La Verne property. We have noticed with these poisons a little better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your La Verne gopher control project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed 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 would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your La Verne property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let a pest control company serving La Verne, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In La Verne, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know La Verne people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate 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 requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole 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 burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your La Verne 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 regulations for everyone’s safety.
