Our normal approach for residential gopher eradication in Bellflower and commercial gopher removal in Bellflower is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
This is why Rodent Guys Bellflower gopher eradication begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your home. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their locations. 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 arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Bellflower gopher eradication. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. Using 2 separate methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Bellflower allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher eradication in Bellflower?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method by itself. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Bellflower property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Bellflower gopher eradication project. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Bellflower yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow a pest control company serving Bellflower, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Bellflower, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Bellflower people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Bellflower 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 laws for everyone’s safety.
