The typical approach for home gopher control in Whittier and commercial gopher removal in Whittier 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 bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our Whittier gopher control begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your location. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Whittier gopher control. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Whittier allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher control in Whittier?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Whittier property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Whittier gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 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 bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Whittier property are 2-8″ 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 bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Whittier, 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 eradication for our customers over the years. In Whittier, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Whittier people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping 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 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Whittier 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 regulations for your safety.
