Rodent Guys gopher trapping service for Redondo Beach gopher eradication protects landscapes from the devastating damage from gophers. Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Redondo Beach, CA.
The typical approach for home gopher eradication in Redondo Beach and commercial gopher removal in Redondo Beach is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Instead our Redondo Beach gopher eradication begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your yard. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets 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 removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Redondo Beach gopher eradication. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Utilizing 2 different control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in Redondo Beach allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher eradication in Redondo Beach?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method by itself. Even the professional strength of gopher poison 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 technique of gopher control for your Redondo Beach property. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Redondo Beach gopher eradication project. At times gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Redondo Beach property are 2-8″ down and easy to dig 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 eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving Redondo Beach, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Redondo Beach, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Redondo Beach customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since 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 highest 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 whole 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 Redondo Beach property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
