Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around servicing Paramount, CA.
The normal approach for residential gopher control in Paramount and commercial gopher removal in Paramount is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait 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 wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this Rodent Guys Paramount gopher control starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with 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 we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Paramount gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two types of methods such as these gives great gopher control in Paramount allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher control in Paramount?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a method alone. Even the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Paramount property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Paramount gopher control project. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Paramount property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming 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 it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Paramount, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Paramount, 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 remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Paramount customers want their gopher infestation solved 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 highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Paramount property. People and pets above ground 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.
