The normal method for home gopher control in San Gabriel and commercial gopher removal in San Gabriel is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Instead Rodent Guys San Gabriel gopher control starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your location. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our San Gabriel gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the burrow. Using 2 different techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in San Gabriel allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher control in San Gabriel?
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your San Gabriel property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your San Gabriel gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they do not plan to eat it (this is common). 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 around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your San Gabriel landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow pest control companies serving San Gabriel, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. In San Gabriel, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know San Gabriel people want their gopher infestation solved right away. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate 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 San Gabriel property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
