The typical method for home gopher extermination in San Dimas and commercial gopher removal in San Dimas is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our San Dimas gopher extermination begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your yard. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our San Dimas 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 tunnel including any young in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in San Dimas allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher extermination in San Dimas?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your San Dimas property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your San Dimas gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows when they do not plan to consume 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 deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your San Dimas property are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving San Dimas, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In San Dimas, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know San Dimas customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your San Dimas 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.
