Our normal approach for home gopher extermination in Rancho Palos Verdes and commercial gopher removal in Rancho Palos Verdes is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our Rancho Palos Verdes gopher extermination begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your location. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Rancho Palos Verdes gopher extermination. We will then 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 young in the burrow. With 2 separate techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Rancho Palos Verdes allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher extermination in Rancho Palos Verdes?
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. Even the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Rancho Palos Verdes property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Rancho Palos Verdes gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Rancho Palos Verdes property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let a pest control company serving Rancho Palos Verdes, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Rancho Palos Verdes, 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 solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Rancho Palos Verdes people want their gopher problem solved quickly. Since 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 best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Rancho Palos Verdes 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 everyone’s safety.
