Our residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around servicing Pico Rivera, CA.
Our typical method for residential gopher control in Pico Rivera and commercial gopher removal in Pico Rivera is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys Pico Rivera gopher control begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying 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 1st phase of our Pico Rivera gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Using two different control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in Pico Rivera allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in Pico Rivera?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method alone. This includes the professional 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 Pico Rivera property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Pico Rivera gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Pico Rivera property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be 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 he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Pico Rivera, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher control in the past few years. In Pico Rivera, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Pico Rivera people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different 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 UN-breathable 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 around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Pico Rivera property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
