Our normal approach for residential gopher extermination in La Verne and commercial gopher removal in La Verne is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys La Verne gopher extermination begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our La Verne gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Utilizing two separate control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in La Verne allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher extermination in La Verne?
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method by itself. Even the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your La Verne property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your La Verne gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal bait. 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 gets into the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your La Verne lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. 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 bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving La Verne, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years. In La Verne, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know La Verne people want their gopher problem solved quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest 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 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your La Verne 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 regulations for your safety.
