Our typical approach for home gopher eradication in Calabasas and commercial gopher removal in Calabasas is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our Calabasas gopher eradication starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your yard. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Calabasas gopher eradication. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. With two different methods such as these gives great gopher control in Calabasas allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher eradication in Calabasas?
Several poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method alone. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Calabasas property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Calabasas gopher eradication project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels when they do not plan 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 lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Calabasas property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The poison 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 poison and do not allow a pest control company serving Calabasas, 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 ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Calabasas, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Calabasas customers want their gopher problem solved right away. 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 highest chances of full gopher eradication.
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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Calabasas 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.
