Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Pasadena, CA.
Our typical approach for home gopher control in Pasadena and commercial gopher removal in Pasadena is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
This is why our Pasadena gopher control begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your yard. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Pasadena gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. Using 2 separate control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Pasadena allowing us to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in Pasadena?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Pasadena property. We have seen with these poisons slightly better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Pasadena gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Pasadena yard are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving Pasadena, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Pasadena, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is 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 Pasadena people want their gopher problem solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Pasadena 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.
