The normal method for home gopher removal in Maywood and commercial gopher removal in Maywood is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Based on this our Maywood gopher removal begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally 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 pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Maywood gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Using 2 separate techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Maywood allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher removal in Maywood?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Maywood property. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Maywood gopher removal project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Maywood property are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming 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 it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Maywood, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Maywood, 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.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Maywood customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping 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 fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 30 seconds and will exterminate 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 Maywood property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
