The typical approach for home gopher removal in Bell Gardens and commercial gopher removal in Bell Gardens is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Instead Rodent Guys Bell Gardens gopher removal begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your location. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Bell Gardens gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. With two different methods such as these gives great gopher control in Bell Gardens allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher removal in Bell Gardens?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a method by itself. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Bell Gardens property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Bell Gardens gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Bell Gardens property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The poison 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let a pest control company serving Bell Gardens, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Bell Gardens, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Bell Gardens people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Bell Gardens property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
