The normal approach for home gopher extermination in Alhambra and commercial gopher removal in Alhambra is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our Alhambra gopher extermination starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your home. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Alhambra gopher extermination. We will then 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 2 different methods such as these offers great gopher control in Alhambra allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher extermination in Alhambra?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Alhambra property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Alhambra gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows 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 animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill 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 digs down to the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Alhambra property are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot 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 is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Alhambra, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Alhambra, 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 pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Alhambra customers want their gopher problem solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate 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 unlivable 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 about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Alhambra property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
