The typical method for home gopher removal in Los Angeles and commercial gopher removal in Los Angeles is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys Los Angeles gopher removal starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your location. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Los Angeles gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. With two different techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Los Angeles allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher removal in Los Angeles?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a method by itself. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Los Angeles property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Los Angeles gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they don’t 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 lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Los Angeles property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Los Angeles, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher control in the past few years. In Los Angeles, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Los Angeles people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
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 entire 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 nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Los Angeles 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 laws for your safety.
