We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around servicing Hermosa Beach, CA.
Our normal approach for home gopher removal in Hermosa Beach and commercial gopher removal in Hermosa Beach is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Instead Rodent Guys Hermosa Beach gopher removal starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your yard. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days varying 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 1st phase of our Hermosa Beach gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. With two different methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Hermosa Beach allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher removal in Hermosa Beach?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method alone. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Hermosa Beach property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Hermosa Beach gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume 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 down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Hermosa Beach landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. 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 bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Hermosa Beach, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Hermosa Beach, 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 pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Hermosa Beach customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Hermosa Beach property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
