Rodent Guys gopher control service for Commerce gopher extermination protects landscaping from the extensive damage by gophers. Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Commerce, CA.
The normal approach for residential gopher extermination in Commerce and commercial gopher removal in Commerce is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
This is why Rodent Guys Commerce gopher extermination begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your property. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Commerce gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Utilizing two separate control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Commerce allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher extermination in Commerce?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method alone. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Commerce property. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Commerce gopher extermination project. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Commerce landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison 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 it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving Commerce, 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 methods for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Commerce, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Commerce customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since 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 extermination.
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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Commerce property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
