The typical approach for home gopher extermination in Santa Fe Springs and commercial gopher removal in Santa Fe Springs is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this Rodent Guys Santa Fe Springs gopher extermination begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Santa Fe Springs gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two types of control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Santa Fe Springs allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher extermination in Santa Fe Springs?
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Santa Fe Springs property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Santa Fe Springs gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Santa Fe Springs lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let pest control companies serving Santa Fe Springs, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher control in the past few years. In Santa Fe Springs, 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 removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Santa Fe Springs people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Santa Fe Springs property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
