Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Vernon, CA.
The normal method for residential gopher control in Vernon and commercial gopher removal in Vernon is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our Vernon gopher control begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your location. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Vernon gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Utilizing two different methods such as these gives great gopher control in Vernon allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher control in Vernon?
Several poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method alone. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Vernon property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Vernon gopher control project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Vernon yard are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
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 poison 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 highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Vernon, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Vernon, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Vernon customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. Since 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 best 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 lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Vernon property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
