Our normal approach for home gopher removal in Glendale and commercial gopher removal in Glendale is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys Glendale gopher removal starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your yard. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps 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 first phase of our Glendale gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. Using 2 separate techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Glendale allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher removal in Glendale?
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method alone. This includes the professional strength 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 technique of gopher control for your Glendale property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Glendale gopher removal project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another 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 pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Glendale landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Glendale, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher control in the past few years. In Glendale, 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 remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Glendale customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Glendale property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
