The normal method for home gopher extermination in Palos Verdes Estates and commercial gopher removal in Palos Verdes Estates is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys Palos Verdes Estates gopher extermination starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your home. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Palos Verdes Estates 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 babies in the nest. Using 2 separate methods such as these gives excellent gopher control in Palos Verdes Estates allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher extermination in Palos Verdes Estates?
Several poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. Even the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Palos Verdes Estates property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Palos Verdes Estates gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Palos Verdes Estates landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed 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 let a pest control company serving Palos Verdes Estates, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Palos Verdes Estates, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Palos Verdes Estates 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 best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Palos Verdes Estates 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.
