Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Hermosa Beach, CA.
The typical approach for residential gopher eradication in Hermosa Beach and commercial gopher removal in Hermosa Beach is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this our Hermosa Beach gopher eradication starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your yard. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Hermosa Beach gopher eradication. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. With two types of methods such as these offers excellent gopher control in Hermosa Beach allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher eradication in Hermosa Beach?
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method by itself. This includes the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Hermosa Beach property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Hermosa Beach gopher eradication project. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 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 technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Hermosa Beach yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Hermosa Beach, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Hermosa Beach, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Hermosa Beach customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method 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 needs 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 exterminate 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 Hermosa Beach 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 regulations for your safety.
