Our typical approach for residential gopher eradication in West Covina and commercial gopher removal in West Covina is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys West Covina gopher eradication starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your home. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with 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 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 West Covina gopher eradication. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Utilizing two different control techniques such as these offers great gopher control in West Covina allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher eradication in West Covina?
Several poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your West Covina property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your West Covina gopher eradication project. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they do not plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your West Covina property are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The bait 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow pest control companies serving West Covina, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In West Covina, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows West Covina people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your West Covina 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 your safety.
