The normal approach for residential gopher extermination in Cerritos and commercial gopher removal in Cerritos is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Because of this our Cerritos gopher extermination starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your location. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps 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 removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Cerritos gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 different techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Cerritos allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher extermination in Cerritos?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a method alone. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Cerritos property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Cerritos gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Cerritos landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let pest control companies serving Cerritos, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many methods for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Cerritos, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Cerritos customers want their gopher problem solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Cerritos 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 laws for everyone’s safety.
