Rodent Guys gopher trapping service for South El Monte gopher control protects landscaping from the devastating damage from gophers. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company around servicing South El Monte, CA.
Our normal method for home gopher control in South El Monte and commercial gopher removal in South El Monte is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this our South El Monte gopher control begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your property. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing 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 Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our South El Monte gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. With two separate techniques such as these offers great gopher control in South El Monte allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher control in South El Monte?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method by itself. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your South El Monte property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your South El Monte gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they do not plan 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. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your South El Monte landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow a pest control company serving South El Monte, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In South El Monte, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows South El Monte people want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your South El Monte property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
