The typical approach for residential gopher extermination in Lynwood and commercial gopher removal in Lynwood is dual process of traps and gas injection. 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 found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our Lynwood gopher extermination begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your property. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their locations. 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 the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Lynwood gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. Utilizing 2 types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Lynwood allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher extermination in Lynwood?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Lynwood property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Lynwood gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Lynwood yard are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let a pest control company serving Lynwood, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Lynwood, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Lynwood customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire 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 nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Lynwood property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
