The normal approach for residential gopher extermination in Maywood and commercial gopher removal in Maywood is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our Maywood gopher extermination begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your yard. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Maywood gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the nest. With 2 separate methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Maywood allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher extermination in Maywood?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a method by itself. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Maywood property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Maywood gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend 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 eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Maywood property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Maywood, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Maywood, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Maywood customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping program 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 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Maywood 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.
