Our normal method for home gopher extermination in Walnut and commercial gopher removal in Walnut is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. 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 pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our Walnut gopher extermination begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your yard. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 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 1st phase of our Walnut gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. Utilizing two types of control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Walnut allowing us to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher extermination in Walnut?
Several poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method by itself. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Walnut property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Walnut gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when 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 wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. 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 companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Walnut property are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Walnut, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Walnut, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Walnut customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since 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 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 about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Walnut 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.
