Our normal approach for residential gopher removal in Montebello and commercial gopher removal in Montebello is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys Montebello gopher removal starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your location. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Montebello gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing 2 separate methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Montebello allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher removal in Montebello?
Several poisons are sold 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, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Montebello property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Montebello gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Montebello lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Montebello, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Montebello, 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 remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Montebello people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different 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 deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Montebello property. Above ground people and pets 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.
