The normal approach for home gopher extermination in Gardena and commercial gopher removal in Gardena is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys Gardena gopher extermination begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your yard. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Gardena gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. With two types of techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Gardena allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher extermination in Gardena?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method alone. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Gardena property. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Gardena gopher extermination project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Gardena property are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
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 is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving Gardena, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Gardena, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet 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 Gardena customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
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 about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Gardena 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.
