The normal method for home gopher extermination in Torrance and commercial gopher removal in Torrance is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys Torrance gopher extermination starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your property. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Torrance 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 the offspring in the nest. With 2 separate techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Torrance allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher extermination in Torrance?
While many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available 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 Torrance property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Torrance gopher extermination project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Torrance property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let pest control companies serving Torrance, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Torrance, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Torrance customers want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Torrance property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
