Our typical method for home gopher eradication in Long Beach and commercial gopher removal in Long Beach is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this our Long Beach gopher eradication starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your home. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Long Beach gopher eradication. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject 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 control techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Long Beach allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher eradication in Long Beach?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method by itself. Even the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Long Beach property. We have seen with these poisons a little higher but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Long Beach gopher eradication project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Long Beach lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Long Beach, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher control in the past few years. In Long Beach, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Long Beach people want their gopher problem solved right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Long Beach property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
