Our normal method for residential gopher extermination in Monterey Park and commercial gopher removal in Monterey Park is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Based on this our Monterey Park gopher extermination starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Monterey Park gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. With 2 types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Monterey Park allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher extermination in Monterey Park?
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the commercial version of gopher poison 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 Monterey Park property. We have seen with these poisons slightly better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Monterey Park gopher extermination project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Monterey Park landscape are 2-8″ 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 eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow pest control companies serving Monterey Park, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Monterey Park, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Monterey Park people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Monterey Park property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
