The normal method for residential gopher removal in Cerritos and commercial gopher removal in Cerritos is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys Cerritos gopher removal starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your yard. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Cerritos gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including any babies in the burrow. Utilizing 2 different techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Cerritos allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher removal in Cerritos?
There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait available 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 Cerritos property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Cerritos gopher removal project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. 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 gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Cerritos property are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The other 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Cerritos, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Cerritos, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Cerritos customers want their gopher problem solved quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 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 about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Cerritos property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
