Rodent Guys gopher removal service for Rosemead gopher control protects landscapes from the devastating damage from gophers. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Rosemead, CA.
The typical approach for residential gopher control in Rosemead and commercial gopher removal in Rosemead 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 rat poison. We have concluded 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 Rosemead gopher control starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your yard. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying 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 Rosemead gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. Utilizing 2 types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Rosemead allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in Rosemead?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Rosemead property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Rosemead gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows if they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Rosemead landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let a pest control company serving Rosemead, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Rosemead, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Rosemead customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Rosemead 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 laws for your safety.
