We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Walnut, CA.
The typical approach for home gopher control in Walnut and commercial gopher removal in Walnut is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Based on this our Walnut gopher control begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Walnut gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. With 2 different control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Walnut allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in Walnut?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Walnut property. We have seen with these poisons a little better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Walnut gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 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 technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Walnut landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The last 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 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow a pest control company serving Walnut, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Walnut, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Walnut people want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping program 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 floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only needs 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 young in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Walnut property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
