Our typical approach for home gopher extermination in Calabasas and commercial gopher removal in Calabasas is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys Calabasas gopher extermination begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your home. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Calabasas gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. With 2 different control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Calabasas allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher extermination in Calabasas?
Several poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method by itself. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Calabasas property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Calabasas gopher extermination project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume 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 lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Calabasas lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow pest control companies serving Calabasas, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Calabasas, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Calabasas people want their gopher infestation solved right away. 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Calabasas property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
