Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Norwalk, CA.
The typical method for home gopher control in Norwalk and commercial gopher removal in Norwalk is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys Norwalk gopher control begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps 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 from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Norwalk gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. With 2 separate methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Norwalk allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher control in Norwalk?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Norwalk property. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Norwalk gopher control project. At times gophers will eject 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 available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal bait. 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 gets into the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Norwalk lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Norwalk, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Norwalk, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Norwalk people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 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 Norwalk 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 your safety.
