The normal method for home gopher eradication in La Habra Heights and commercial gopher removal in La Habra Heights 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 bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Based on this Rodent Guys La Habra Heights gopher eradication begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your yard. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our La Habra Heights gopher eradication. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Using two separate control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in La Habra Heights allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher eradication in La Habra Heights?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison 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 La Habra Heights property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your La Habra Heights gopher eradication project. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly 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 tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your La Habra Heights lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let a pest control company serving La Habra Heights, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. In La Habra Heights, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet 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 La Habra Heights people want their gopher problem solved quickly. 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 fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your La Habra Heights 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 everyone’s safety.
