Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company around servicing Redondo Beach, CA.
The normal method for residential gopher extermination in Redondo Beach and commercial gopher removal in Redondo Beach is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
This is why our Redondo Beach gopher extermination starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your yard. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Redondo Beach gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Utilizing 2 separate control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Redondo Beach allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher extermination in Redondo Beach?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Redondo Beach property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Redondo Beach gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows when they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 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 gets into the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Redondo Beach yard are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let pest control companies serving Redondo Beach, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Redondo Beach, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Redondo Beach people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Redondo Beach property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
