The typical approach for home gopher control in Lomita and commercial gopher removal in Lomita is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys Lomita gopher control begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your property. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Lomita gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the nest. With 2 types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in Lomita allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher control in Lomita?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method alone. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Lomita property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Lomita gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat 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 quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Lomita yard are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get 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 pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow a pest control company serving Lomita, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Lomita, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Lomita people want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method 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 fills 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Lomita 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 laws for your safety.
