Rodent Guys gopher trapping service for Rancho Palos Verdes gopher control protects properties from the devastating damage by gophers. Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around servicing Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.
The typical approach for residential gopher control in Rancho Palos Verdes and commercial gopher removal in Rancho Palos Verdes is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys Rancho Palos Verdes gopher control begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your location. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Rancho Palos Verdes gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Rancho Palos Verdes allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in Rancho Palos Verdes?
Several poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method alone. This includes 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 fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Rancho Palos Verdes property. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Rancho Palos Verdes gopher control project. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Rancho Palos Verdes yard are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
The last common 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow a pest control company serving Rancho Palos Verdes, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Rancho Palos Verdes, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Rancho Palos Verdes people want their gopher problem solved 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 unlivable environment which only needs 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 babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Rancho Palos Verdes 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 everyone’s safety.
