The typical approach for residential gopher control in Lynwood and commercial gopher removal in Lynwood is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys Lynwood gopher control starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Lynwood gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. With 2 types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in Lynwood allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher control in Lynwood?
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method alone. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Lynwood property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Lynwood gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Lynwood yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving Lynwood, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Lynwood, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Lynwood people want their gopher problem solved right away. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Lynwood property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
