Rodent Guys gopher control service for Norwalk gopher removal protects homes from the vast damage from gophers. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, 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 Norwalk, CA.
Our normal method for residential gopher removal in Norwalk and commercial gopher removal in Norwalk is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Based on this our Norwalk gopher removal starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent evidence on your location. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Norwalk gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the burrow. Utilizing two separate techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Norwalk allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher removal in Norwalk?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Norwalk property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Norwalk gopher removal project. At times gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Norwalk property are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming 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 he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let a pest control company serving Norwalk, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Norwalk, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Norwalk customers want their gopher problem solved right away. When 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 best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable 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 thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Norwalk property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
