Our typical method for home gopher extermination in Cudahy and commercial gopher removal in Cudahy is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this our Cudahy gopher extermination begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your yard. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking 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 come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Cudahy gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two types of methods such as these gives great gopher control in Cudahy allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher extermination in Cudahy?
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method alone. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Cudahy property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Cudahy gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume 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 consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Cudahy lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The poison 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving Cudahy, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher control in the past few years. In Cudahy, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Cudahy customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Cudahy property. Above ground people and pets 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.
