Our normal method for residential gopher control in Monrovia and commercial gopher removal in Monrovia is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys Monrovia gopher control begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your home. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Monrovia gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. Utilizing two separate methods such as these offers great gopher control in Monrovia allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in Monrovia?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Monrovia property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Monrovia gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. 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 tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Monrovia yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let a pest control company serving Monrovia, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Monrovia, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Monrovia 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 method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 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 Monrovia 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 everyone’s safety.
