The normal method for home gopher extermination in Covina and commercial gopher removal in Covina is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys Covina gopher extermination starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent evidence on your yard. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Covina gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. Utilizing 2 different techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Covina allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher extermination in Covina?
Several poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. This includes the professional strength 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 Covina property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Covina gopher extermination project. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows if they do not plan 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 bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Covina landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating 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 he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Covina, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many methods for gopher control in the past few years. In Covina, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Covina people want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since we follow our trapping program 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 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 lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Covina 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 regulations for everyone’s safety.
