Our normal approach for home gopher control in Redondo Beach and commercial gopher removal in Redondo Beach is a combination of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this Rodent Guys Redondo Beach gopher control starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your home. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Redondo Beach gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. Utilizing 2 separate methods such as these offers great gopher control in Redondo Beach allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in Redondo Beach?
Various 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 poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Redondo Beach property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Redondo Beach gopher control project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty 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 pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Redondo Beach property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet 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 let pest control companies serving Redondo Beach, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Redondo Beach, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Redondo Beach people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate 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 about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Redondo Beach 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 regulations for your safety.
