Our normal approach for home gopher eradication in Bell Gardens and commercial gopher removal in Bell Gardens is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys Bell Gardens gopher eradication begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Bell Gardens gopher eradication. 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 burrow including any young in the nest. Utilizing 2 separate methods such as these gives excellent gopher control in Bell Gardens allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher eradication in Bell Gardens?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method by itself. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Bell Gardens property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Bell Gardens gopher eradication project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to eat 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 deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Bell Gardens yard are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. 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 have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Bell Gardens, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Bell Gardens, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Bell Gardens people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Bell Gardens 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 laws for your safety.
