Rodent Guys gopher control service for Lakewood gopher control protects homes from the extensive damage from gophers. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Lakewood, CA.
The normal method for residential gopher control in Lakewood and commercial gopher removal in Lakewood is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this our Lakewood gopher control begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your property. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Lakewood gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using 2 different methods such as these gives great gopher control in Lakewood allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in Lakewood?
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method alone. Even the commercial version of gopher poison 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 Lakewood property. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Lakewood gopher control project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan 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 thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Lakewood yard are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The other 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he 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 Lakewood, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Lakewood, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Lakewood customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly. When 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 extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Lakewood property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
