We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company around servicing Pico Rivera, CA.
Our normal approach for residential gopher extermination in Pico Rivera and commercial gopher removal in Pico Rivera is a combination of trapping 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 pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our Pico Rivera gopher extermination begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your home. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Pico Rivera gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of methods such as these offers great gopher control in Pico Rivera allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher extermination in Pico Rivera?
Various 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 known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Pico Rivera property. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Pico Rivera gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows when they don’t 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 deadly 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 tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Pico Rivera yard are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison 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 it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Pico Rivera, CA tell you it is safe – its 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 Pico Rivera, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Pico Rivera customers want their gopher problem solved right away. Since we follow our trapping 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 extermination.
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 nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Pico Rivera 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 laws for everyone’s safety.
