Our normal method for residential gopher extermination in Claremont and commercial gopher removal in Claremont is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our Claremont gopher extermination begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your yard. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Claremont gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two separate control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Claremont allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher extermination in Claremont?
Several poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Claremont property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Claremont gopher extermination project. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Claremont property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait 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 he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Claremont, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many techniques for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Claremont, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Claremont 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 different method 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 around 30 seconds and will exterminate 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 Claremont 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 laws for everyone’s safety.
