Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing La Puente, CA.
Our typical method for home gopher extermination in La Puente and commercial gopher removal in La Puente is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison 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 animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our La Puente gopher extermination starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your location. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. 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 the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our La Puente 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 young in the burrow. Using two types of control techniques such as these offers great gopher control in La Puente allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher extermination in La Puente?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your La Puente property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your La Puente gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your La Puente yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be 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 pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow pest control companies serving La Puente, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years. In La Puente, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know La Puente people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 babies in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your La Puente property. Above ground people and pets 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.
