Our typical method for home gopher extermination in Rosemead and commercial gopher removal in Rosemead is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our Rosemead gopher extermination starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your property. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets 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 from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Rosemead gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the burrow. Utilizing two separate techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Rosemead allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher extermination in Rosemead?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Rosemead property. We have seen with these poisons a little higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Rosemead gopher extermination project. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another 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 technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Rosemead lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait 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 pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let a pest control company serving Rosemead, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Rosemead, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Rosemead people want their gopher problem fixed right away. When we follow our trapping 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 floods 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 thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Rosemead 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 everyone’s safety.
