Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Maywood, CA.
The normal method for home gopher control in Maywood and commercial gopher removal in Maywood is a combination 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 bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys Maywood gopher control begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your yard. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven 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 1st phase of our Maywood gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two different methods such as these offers great gopher control in Maywood allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in Maywood?
While many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Maywood property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Maywood gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Maywood landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow a pest control company serving Maywood, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many methods for gopher control in the past few years. In Maywood, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Maywood customers want their gopher problem fixed 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 fills the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Maywood 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.
