Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Gardena, CA.
The typical approach for residential gopher removal in Gardena and commercial gopher removal in Gardena is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Based on this our Gardena gopher removal begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your home. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Gardena gopher removal. We will then 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 separate methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Gardena allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher removal in Gardena?
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method by itself. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Gardena property. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Gardena gopher removal project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume 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 digs down to the bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Gardena yard are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison 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 it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Gardena, 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 Gardena, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Gardena customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different 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 unlivable 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 around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Gardena 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 your safety.
