Rodent Guys gopher trapping service for South Pasadena gopher control protects properties from the vast damage caused from gophers. Our residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing South Pasadena, CA.
Our normal approach for residential gopher control in South Pasadena and commercial gopher removal in South Pasadena is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait 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 high.
Because of this our South Pasadena gopher control starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your location. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our South Pasadena gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Using two separate techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in South Pasadena allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in South Pasadena?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your South Pasadena property. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your South Pasadena gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly 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 burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your South Pasadena yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving South Pasadena, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher control in the past few years. In South Pasadena, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows South Pasadena customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 about 30 seconds and will exterminate 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 Pasadena 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 laws for everyone’s safety.
