Our typical method for home gopher extermination in Pasadena and commercial gopher removal in Pasadena is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys Pasadena gopher extermination begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your location. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Pasadena gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. With 2 separate control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Pasadena allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher extermination in Pasadena?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Pasadena property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Pasadena gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty 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 bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Pasadena landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The poison 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow pest control companies serving Pasadena, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Pasadena, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Pasadena people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping 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 extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 around thirty 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 Pasadena property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
