Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Azusa, CA.
Our typical approach for residential gopher extermination in Azusa and commercial gopher removal in Azusa is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our Azusa gopher extermination starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your home. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Azusa gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. Using two different techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Azusa allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher extermination in Azusa?
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Azusa property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Azusa gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly 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 consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Azusa lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let pest control companies serving Azusa, 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 eradication in the past few years. In Azusa, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Azusa people want their gopher problem fixed right away. When we follow our trapping program 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 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 around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Azusa property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
