Our normal method for residential gopher eradication in Hawthorne and commercial gopher removal in Hawthorne is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.
This is why Rodent Guys Hawthorne gopher eradication starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your home. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Hawthorne gopher eradication. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Using two different control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Hawthorne allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher eradication in Hawthorne?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Hawthorne property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Hawthorne gopher eradication project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Hawthorne yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison 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 do not let pest control companies serving Hawthorne, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Hawthorne, 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 remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Hawthorne customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 fills 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 deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Hawthorne 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 regulations for everyone’s safety.
