Our typical approach for residential gopher removal in Carson and commercial gopher removal in Carson is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
This is why our Carson gopher removal starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your yard. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Carson gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. With 2 separate control techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Carson allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher removal in Carson?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. This includes the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Carson property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Carson gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Carson yard are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow a pest control company serving Carson, CA tell you it is safe – its 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 Carson, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Carson people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate 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 unlivable 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 around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Carson 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 your safety.
