Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other animals. Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing South Gate, CA.
Our normal method for home gopher eradication in South Gate and commercial gopher removal in South Gate is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous 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 wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this our South Gate gopher eradication begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your property. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let 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 the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our South Gate gopher eradication. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. Using two different techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in South Gate allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher eradication in South Gate?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your South Gate property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children for your South Gate gopher eradication project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into 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 South Gate property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it 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 South Gate, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher control in the past few years. In South Gate, 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. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know South Gate people want their gopher infestation 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 best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate 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 South Gate property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
