Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around servicing San Marino, CA.
The normal approach for home gopher control in San Marino and commercial gopher removal in San Marino is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys San Marino gopher control starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your home. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our San Marino gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. With two different control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in San Marino allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in San Marino?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively 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 known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your San Marino property. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your San Marino gopher control project. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your San Marino yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be 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 it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let pest control companies serving San Marino, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In San Marino, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows San Marino people want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your San Marino property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
