Our normal method for residential gopher extermination in Avalon and commercial gopher removal in Avalon is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys Avalon gopher extermination begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your yard. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Avalon gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. Using 2 separate methods such as these offers excellent gopher control in Avalon allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher extermination in Avalon?
There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method alone. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Avalon property. We have noticed with these poisons a little better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Avalon gopher extermination project. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to consume 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 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Avalon property are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Avalon, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Avalon, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Avalon people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Avalon 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 everyone’s safety.
