The typical approach for home gopher removal in Hawthorne and commercial gopher removal in Hawthorne is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our Hawthorne gopher removal begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your yard. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Hawthorne gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. With 2 types of techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Hawthorne allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher removal in Hawthorne?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method by itself. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Hawthorne property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Hawthorne gopher removal project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Hawthorne property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The 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 Hawthorne, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Hawthorne, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control 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 problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Hawthorne customers want their gopher problem solved quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method 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 requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Hawthorne property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
