Our normal approach for residential gopher eradication in Claremont and commercial gopher removal in Claremont is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison 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 wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys Claremont gopher eradication begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your location. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Claremont 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 tunnel including any babies in the nest. Using 2 different control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Claremont allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher eradication in Claremont?
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method by itself. Even the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Claremont property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher than that but still 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 Claremont gopher eradication project. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Claremont lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
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 poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it 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 Claremont, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Claremont, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Claremont people want their gopher problem solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 lethal 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 Claremont property. People and pets above ground 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.
