Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Paramount, CA.
The typical method for home gopher removal in Paramount and commercial gopher removal in Paramount is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our Paramount gopher removal starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your location. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Paramount gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. Using 2 separate techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Paramount allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher removal in Paramount?
Several poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method alone. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available 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 method of gopher control for your Paramount property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Paramount gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat 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 eats the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Paramount lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The other 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 dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Paramount, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Paramount, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Paramount customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. When 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 best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Paramount 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 everyone’s safety.
