Our normal approach for residential gopher eradication in Rolling Hills and commercial gopher removal in Rolling Hills is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys Rolling Hills gopher eradication begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your property. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Rolling Hills gopher eradication. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. Using 2 separate techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Rolling Hills allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher eradication in Rolling Hills?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method by itself. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Rolling Hills property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Rolling Hills gopher eradication project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they do not plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Rolling Hills landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The poison 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Rolling Hills, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Rolling Hills, 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?
Rodent Guys knows Rolling Hills people want their gopher problem solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method 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 requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Rolling Hills 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 regulations for everyone’s safety.
