Our typical method for residential gopher removal in La Puente and commercial gopher removal in La Puente is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our La Puente gopher removal starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your location. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets 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 pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our La Puente gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. With 2 types of methods such as these offers excellent gopher control in La Puente allowing us to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher removal in La Puente?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your La Puente property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your La Puente gopher removal project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your La Puente lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground 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 ate the bait. 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 own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving La Puente, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher control in the past few years. In La Puente, 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 solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know La Puente people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping program 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 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 lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your La Puente 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.
