Our normal approach for residential gopher control in Monterey Park and commercial gopher removal in Monterey Park is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison 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 including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our Monterey Park gopher control begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your property. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Monterey Park gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in Monterey Park allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in Monterey Park?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method alone. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Monterey Park property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Monterey Park gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Monterey Park lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Monterey Park, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Monterey Park, 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. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Monterey Park customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 fills 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 about thirty seconds and will exterminate 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 Monterey Park 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.
