Our typical method for residential gopher removal in Irwindale and commercial gopher removal in Irwindale is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys Irwindale gopher removal begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your property. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically 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 from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Irwindale gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. Using 2 different techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Irwindale allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher removal in Irwindale?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. 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 Irwindale property. We have seen with these poisons a little higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Irwindale gopher removal project. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows if they do not plan to eat 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 consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Irwindale lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The last 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 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 do not allow a pest control company serving Irwindale, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Irwindale, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Irwindale people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. Since 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 extermination.
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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Irwindale 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 everyone’s safety.
