The normal method for home gopher eradication in Inglewood and commercial gopher removal in Inglewood is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our Inglewood gopher eradication begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your yard. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. 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 the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Inglewood gopher eradication. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including any young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 different control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in Inglewood allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher eradication in Inglewood?
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Inglewood property. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Inglewood gopher eradication project. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows if they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Inglewood property are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Inglewood, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Inglewood, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Inglewood customers want their gopher problem fixed right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best 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 lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Inglewood property. People and pets above ground 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.
