Our normal method for residential gopher extermination in Paramount and commercial gopher removal in Paramount is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our Paramount gopher extermination begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your property. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Paramount gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 separate control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Paramount allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher extermination in Paramount?
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method alone. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Paramount property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Paramount gopher extermination project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Paramount property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get 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 pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Paramount, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher control in the past few years. In Paramount, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Paramount customers want their gopher problem solved right away. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method 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 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 thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Paramount property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
