The normal method for home gopher eradication in Commerce and commercial gopher removal in Commerce is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
This is why Rodent Guys Commerce gopher eradication starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your location. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Commerce gopher eradication. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two different control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Commerce allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher eradication in Commerce?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Commerce property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Commerce gopher eradication project. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Commerce yard are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison 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 dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let pest control companies serving Commerce, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher control in the past few years. In Commerce, 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. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Commerce people want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since we follow our trapping program 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 floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Commerce 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 your safety.
