The typical method for residential gopher eradication in Gardena and commercial gopher removal in Gardena is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys Gardena gopher eradication starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your home. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing 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 Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Gardena 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 tunnel including the babies in the nest. Utilizing two types of methods such as these offers excellent gopher control in Gardena allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher eradication in Gardena?
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait sold to 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 Gardena property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Gardena gopher eradication project. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly 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 several feet down. The tunnels on your Gardena landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed 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 have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let pest control companies serving Gardena, 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 Gardena, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Gardena people want their gopher problem solved right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Gardena 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.
