The typical approach for residential gopher extermination in Bell and commercial gopher removal in Bell is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our Bell gopher extermination starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your yard. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Bell 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 burrow including the young in the burrow. Using 2 separate control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Bell allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher extermination in Bell?
Several poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Bell property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Bell gopher extermination project. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Bell yard are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
The other common 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow a pest control company serving Bell, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Bell, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Bell people want their gopher problem solved right away. When we follow our trapping 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 UN-breathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Bell 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.
