Our typical approach for residential gopher removal in Claremont and commercial gopher removal in Claremont is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this our Claremont gopher removal starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your home. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Claremont 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 burrow including any offspring in the burrow. With 2 separate control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Claremont allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher removal in Claremont?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Claremont property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Claremont gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Claremont property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating 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 own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Claremont, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Claremont, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very 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 Claremont customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping program 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 extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only requires 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 offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Claremont 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.
