Our normal approach for home gopher eradication in Burbank and commercial gopher removal in Burbank is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys Burbank gopher eradication begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your yard. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Burbank gopher eradication. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the nest. Utilizing two separate methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Burbank allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher eradication in Burbank?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Burbank property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Burbank gopher eradication project. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Burbank property are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Burbank, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher control in the past few years. In Burbank, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Burbank customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Burbank property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
