Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Monterey Park, CA.
Our normal method for residential gopher removal in Monterey Park and commercial gopher removal in Monterey Park is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys 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 low and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Instead our Monterey Park gopher removal starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your property. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Monterey Park gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. With 2 separate methods such as these offers great gopher control in Monterey Park allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher removal in Monterey Park?
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Monterey Park property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Monterey Park gopher removal project. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available 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 is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Monterey Park yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow a pest control company serving Monterey Park, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Monterey Park, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Monterey Park people want their gopher problem solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping 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 extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Monterey Park property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
