The normal approach for home gopher control in West Hollywood and commercial gopher removal in West Hollywood is dual process of traps and gas injection. 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 pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys West Hollywood gopher control begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your location. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our West Hollywood gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 types of methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control in West Hollywood allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher control in West Hollywood?
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method alone. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your West Hollywood property. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your West Hollywood gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your West Hollywood landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate 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 bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving West Hollywood, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In West Hollywood, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know West Hollywood people want their gopher problem 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 best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your West Hollywood property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
