Our typical method for home gopher extermination in San Fernando and commercial gopher removal in San Fernando is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of 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 high.
This is why Rodent Guys San Fernando gopher extermination begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your location. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our San Fernando gopher extermination. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 different techniques such as these offers great gopher control in San Fernando allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher extermination in San Fernando?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method alone. Even the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your San Fernando property. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your San Fernando gopher extermination project. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they do not intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. 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 poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your San Fernando property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming 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 is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow pest control companies serving San Fernando, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. In San Fernando, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know San Fernando customers want their gopher problem fixed 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 highest chances of full gopher extermination.
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 about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your San Fernando 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.
