Our typical method for home gopher control in Montebello and commercial gopher removal in Montebello is a combination of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our Montebello gopher control begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your property. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Montebello gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 types of techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Montebello allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in Montebello?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method alone. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Montebello property. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Montebello gopher control project. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows when they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly 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 burrow going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Montebello lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. 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 own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let pest control companies serving Montebello, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Montebello, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Montebello customers want their gopher problem solved quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate 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 unlivable 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 around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Montebello property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
