Our normal method for residential gopher eradication in Vernon and commercial gopher removal in Vernon is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our Vernon gopher eradication starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your property. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending 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 Vernon gopher eradication. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. With 2 types of techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Vernon allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher eradication in Vernon?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method alone. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Vernon property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Vernon gopher eradication project. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they do not intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Vernon lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The poison 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 poison and do not allow pest control companies serving Vernon, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Vernon, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Vernon 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 different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Vernon property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
