We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around servicing South Gate, CA.
The normal method for home gopher control in South Gate and commercial gopher removal in South Gate is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Instead Rodent Guys South Gate gopher control begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your location. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their locations. 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 the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our South Gate gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the burrow. Using 2 types of control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in South Gate allowing us to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher control in South Gate?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your South Gate property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your South Gate gopher control project. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they do not intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your South Gate lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil 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 consumed 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 own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let a pest control company serving South Gate, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In South Gate, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows South Gate people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your South Gate 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.
