The typical method for residential gopher eradication in Azusa and commercial gopher removal in Azusa is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous 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 dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys Azusa gopher eradication begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your property. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Azusa gopher eradication. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel 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 gives excellent gopher control in Azusa allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher eradication in Azusa?
Several poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Azusa property. We have seen with these poisons a little higher but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Azusa gopher eradication project. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Azusa property are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The last 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 it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Azusa, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Azusa, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Azusa people want their gopher problem solved right away. When 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 best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Azusa 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 everyone’s safety.
