Our normal approach for residential gopher control in Rolling Hills and commercial gopher removal in Rolling Hills is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
This is why our Rolling Hills gopher control starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your location. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Rolling Hills gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. Utilizing two types of control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Rolling Hills allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in Rolling Hills?
Several poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Rolling Hills property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Rolling Hills gopher control project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Rolling Hills landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed 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 bait and do not let a pest control company serving Rolling Hills, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Rolling Hills, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Rolling Hills customers want their gopher problem solved right away. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Rolling Hills property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
