Rodent Guys gopher eradication service for Azusa gopher removal protects landscaping from the extensive damage caused from gophers. Our residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around servicing Azusa, CA.
The typical approach for home gopher removal in Azusa and commercial gopher removal in Azusa is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys Azusa gopher removal begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent evidence on your home. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Azusa gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. Using two different techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in Azusa allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher removal in Azusa?
Several poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Azusa property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Azusa gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Azusa yard are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison 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 he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow a pest control company serving Azusa, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Azusa, 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 remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Azusa people want their gopher problem solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Azusa 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 laws for your safety.
