The typical method for home gopher removal in Lomita and commercial gopher removal in Lomita is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Instead our Lomita gopher removal begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your property. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven 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 out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Lomita gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing 2 different methods such as these offers great gopher control in Lomita allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher removal in Lomita?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a method alone. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Lomita property. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Lomita gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they do not intend 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 wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow 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 Lomita yard are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. 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 poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving Lomita, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Lomita, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Lomita people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. When 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 best chances of full gopher extermination.
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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Lomita 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 your safety.
