Our normal approach for home gopher removal in Pasadena and commercial gopher removal in Pasadena is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
This is why Rodent Guys Pasadena gopher removal begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your location. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying 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 1st phase of our Pasadena gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. With 2 separate techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Pasadena allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher removal in Pasadena?
Several poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method by itself. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Pasadena property. We have seen with these poisons a little better than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Pasadena gopher removal project. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. 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 tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Pasadena property are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
The other 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Pasadena, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Pasadena, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Pasadena customers want their gopher problem fixed right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 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 about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Pasadena property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
