Our normal method for home gopher control in Temple City and commercial gopher removal in Temple City is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our Temple City gopher control starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your property. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Temple City gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Utilizing 2 separate techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Temple City allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in Temple City?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method by itself. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Temple City property. We have seen with these poisons slightly better than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Temple City gopher control project. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Temple City landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
The other common 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 pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Temple City, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Temple City, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Temple City people want their gopher problem solved quickly. When 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 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 around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Temple City property. People and pets above ground 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.
