The normal method for residential gopher removal in Huntington Park and commercial gopher removal in Huntington Park is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison 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 elevated.
Because of this our Huntington Park gopher removal starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your home. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying 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 first phase of our Huntington Park gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Huntington Park allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher removal in Huntington Park?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method alone. Even the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Huntington Park property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Huntington Park gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if 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 (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Huntington Park lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog 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 pest control companies serving Huntington Park, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Huntington Park, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Huntington Park customers want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Huntington Park property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
