The normal approach for residential gopher extermination in San Marino and commercial gopher removal in San Marino is a combination of 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. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
This is why Rodent Guys San Marino gopher extermination begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your home. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our San Marino gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. With two types of control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in San Marino allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher extermination in San Marino?
Several poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your San Marino 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 children for your San Marino gopher extermination project. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows when they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your San Marino yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The poison 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let pest control companies serving San Marino, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. In San Marino, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know San Marino people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate 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 San Marino property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
