Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around servicing Santa Fe Springs, CA.
The typical method for residential gopher control in Santa Fe Springs and commercial gopher removal in Santa Fe Springs is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our Santa Fe Springs gopher control begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your property. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small 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 Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Santa Fe Springs gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Using two separate control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Santa Fe Springs allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher control in Santa Fe Springs?
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 poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Santa Fe Springs property. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Santa Fe Springs gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Santa Fe Springs landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow a pest control company serving Santa Fe Springs, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher control in the past few years. In Santa Fe Springs, 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. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Santa Fe Springs people want their gopher problem fixed right away. When 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 best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Santa Fe Springs 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 regulations for everyone’s safety.
