Our residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around servicing South Gate, CA.
Our normal approach for home gopher extermination in South Gate and commercial gopher removal in South Gate is combined with traps and gas injection. 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 including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our South Gate gopher extermination starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your location. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our South Gate gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. With two separate control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in South Gate allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher extermination in South Gate?
Several poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a method by itself. This includes the professional version of gopher bait available 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 South Gate property. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your South Gate gopher extermination project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they do not plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly 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 tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your South Gate property are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. 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 own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving South Gate, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In South Gate, 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 pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know South Gate people want their gopher problem fixed right away. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different 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 deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your South Gate property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
