Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Bell, CA.
Our normal method for home gopher removal in Bell and commercial gopher removal in Bell is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison 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 great.
Because of this our Bell gopher removal begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your location. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Bell gopher removal. We will then 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 babies in the nest. Utilizing two separate techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Bell allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher removal in Bell?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method alone. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Bell property. We have seen with these poisons a little better than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Bell gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly poison. 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 burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Bell landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt 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 poison. The bait 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let pest control companies serving Bell, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Bell, 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?
Rodent Guys knows Bell customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Bell property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
