Our typical approach for residential gopher eradication in Cudahy and commercial gopher removal in Cudahy is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys Cudahy gopher eradication begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your property. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Cudahy gopher eradication. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. With 2 different methods such as these offers excellent gopher control in Cudahy allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher eradication in Cudahy?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. Even the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Cudahy property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Cudahy gopher eradication project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 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 bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Cudahy yard are two to eight inches 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 bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed 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 have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Cudahy, 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 eradication in the past few years. In Cudahy, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Cudahy customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away. Since 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 best chances of full gopher eradication.
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 lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Cudahy property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
