Our normal method for home gopher extermination in Norwalk and commercial gopher removal in Norwalk 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. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this our Norwalk gopher extermination starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your property. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Norwalk gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using 2 separate control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Norwalk allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher extermination in Norwalk?
Several poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a method by itself. This includes the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Norwalk property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Norwalk gopher extermination project. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Norwalk yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving Norwalk, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Norwalk, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, 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 Norwalk people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Norwalk property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
