Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Rolling Hills, CA.
Our typical approach for residential gopher extermination in Rolling Hills and commercial gopher removal in Rolling Hills is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to 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 high.
Because of this our Rolling Hills gopher extermination begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your property. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Rolling Hills gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Rolling Hills allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher extermination in Rolling Hills?
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. Even the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Rolling Hills property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Rolling Hills gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they do not 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 animals) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Rolling Hills lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The last 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let pest control companies serving Rolling Hills, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher control in the past few years. In Rolling Hills, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Rolling Hills customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Rolling Hills property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
