The normal approach for home gopher removal in Glendora and commercial gopher removal in Glendora is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
This is why Rodent Guys Glendora gopher removal starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your location. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using small 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 pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Glendora gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing two different techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Glendora allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher removal in Glendora?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency 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 reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Glendora property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Glendora gopher removal project. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan 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 eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Glendora lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate 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 Glendora, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many techniques for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Glendora, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Glendora customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Glendora 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.
