Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Manhattan Beach, CA.
The typical approach for residential gopher removal in Manhattan Beach and commercial gopher removal in Manhattan Beach is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison 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 great.
Instead our Manhattan Beach gopher removal begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your property. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Manhattan Beach gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the nest. Utilizing two different techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Manhattan Beach allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher removal in Manhattan Beach?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method by itself. Even the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Manhattan Beach property. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Manhattan Beach gopher removal project. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they do not plan to consume it (this is common). 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 bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Manhattan Beach lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating 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 he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Manhattan Beach, 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 Manhattan Beach, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely 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?
Rodent Guys knows Manhattan Beach customers want their gopher problem solved right away. Since we follow our trapping program 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 eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Manhattan Beach 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 everyone’s safety.
