The typical approach for residential gopher eradication in Bell and commercial gopher removal in Bell is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys Bell gopher eradication starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your yard. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Bell gopher eradication. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. Using 2 separate methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Bell allowing us to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher eradication in Bell?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Bell property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Bell gopher eradication project. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they do not intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 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 bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Bell landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow a pest control company serving Bell, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Bell, 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 remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Bell customers want their gopher problem solved quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire 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. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Bell 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.
