The typical approach for home gopher extermination in Compton and commercial gopher removal in Compton is dual process of traps 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 poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our Compton gopher extermination starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your property. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Compton gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Using 2 types of methods such as these offers great gopher control in Compton allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher extermination in Compton?
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Compton property. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Compton gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, 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 into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Compton landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog 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 let pest control companies serving Compton, 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 Compton, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Compton customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Compton 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 laws for everyone’s safety.
