Rodent Guys gopher eradication service for Inglewood gopher extermination protects homes from the extensive damage from gophers. Our residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around servicing Inglewood, CA.
The normal approach for home gopher extermination in Inglewood and commercial gopher removal in Inglewood is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Instead our Inglewood gopher extermination starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your home. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Inglewood gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using two types of methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Inglewood allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher extermination in Inglewood?
Several poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Inglewood property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Inglewood gopher extermination project. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty 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 bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Inglewood property are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Inglewood, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Inglewood, 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 pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Inglewood 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 floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty 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 Inglewood 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.
