Rodent Guys gopher extermination service for Calabasas gopher removal protects landscaping from the devastating damage caused from gophers. Our residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Calabasas, CA.
The normal approach for residential gopher removal in Calabasas and commercial gopher removal in Calabasas is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
This is why our Calabasas gopher removal starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your home. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Calabasas gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any young in the burrow. Using 2 types of techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Calabasas allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher removal in Calabasas?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method alone. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Calabasas property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Calabasas gopher removal project. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Calabasas lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Calabasas, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Calabasas, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Calabasas 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 method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Calabasas property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
