The typical method for home gopher eradication in San Dimas and commercial gopher removal in San Dimas is a combination of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded 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 Rodent Guys San Dimas gopher eradication begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your yard. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our San Dimas gopher eradication. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 types of methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control in San Dimas allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher eradication in San Dimas?
Several poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your San Dimas property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your San Dimas gopher eradication project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your San Dimas yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving San Dimas, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. In San Dimas, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows San Dimas customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your San Dimas 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.
