Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Monrovia, CA.
Our typical method for home gopher removal in Monrovia and commercial gopher removal in Monrovia is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Based on this our Monrovia gopher removal starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your property. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Monrovia gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. With two types of techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Monrovia allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher removal in Monrovia?
Several poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Monrovia property. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Monrovia gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Monrovia yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last common 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 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 poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving Monrovia, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Monrovia, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Monrovia people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different 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 deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Monrovia property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
