The normal approach for residential gopher eradication in Pomona and commercial gopher removal in Pomona is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our Pomona gopher eradication begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your yard. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Pomona gopher eradication. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using two different techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Pomona allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher eradication in Pomona?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Pomona property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Pomona gopher eradication project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Pomona property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get 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 is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Pomona, CA try to 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 Pomona, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child 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 Pomona people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
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 lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Pomona property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
