Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Los Angeles, CA.
Our normal method for gopher control home in Los Angeles and commercial gopher removal in Los Angeles is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys Los Angeles gopher control begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your home. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control for Los Angeles, Ca. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. With two different techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Los Angeles allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison?
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. Even the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Los Angeles property. We have seen with these poisons a little higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child at your Los Angeles property. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Los Angeles property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Los Angeles, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Los Angeles, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Los Angeles people want their gopher problem 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 best 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Los Angeles property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
