We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around servicing Compton, CA.
Our normal method for home gopher removal in Compton and commercial gopher removal in Compton is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our Compton gopher removal begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your property. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Compton gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. Using 2 separate control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in Compton allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher removal in Compton?
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Compton property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Compton gopher removal project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Compton yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let a pest control company serving Compton, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Compton, 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 solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Compton people want their gopher problem solved right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
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 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 nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Compton property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
