The typical method for home gopher control in Rolling Hills Estates and commercial gopher removal in Rolling Hills Estates is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this Rodent Guys Rolling Hills Estates gopher control starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Rolling Hills Estates gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the nest. With 2 different methods such as these offers great gopher control in Rolling Hills Estates allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in Rolling Hills Estates?
While many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Rolling Hills Estates property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Rolling Hills Estates gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Rolling Hills Estates lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let pest control companies serving Rolling Hills Estates, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Rolling Hills Estates, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Rolling Hills Estates customers want their gopher problem solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping 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 eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable 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 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Rolling Hills Estates property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
