The typical method for home gopher eradication in San Gabriel and commercial gopher removal in San Gabriel is a combination of trapping 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 pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this our San Gabriel gopher eradication starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your yard. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our San Gabriel gopher eradication. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Using 2 different methods such as these gives excellent gopher control in San Gabriel allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher eradication in San Gabriel?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method by itself. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available 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 San Gabriel property. We have seen with these poisons a little higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your San Gabriel gopher eradication project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your San Gabriel landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil 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 ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving San Gabriel, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In San Gabriel, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know San Gabriel people want their gopher problem fixed right away. When we follow our trapping 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 eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your San Gabriel 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 laws for everyone’s safety.
