Our typical method for residential gopher removal in Pico Rivera and commercial gopher removal in Pico Rivera is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Instead Rodent Guys Pico Rivera gopher removal begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your location. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Pico Rivera gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using 2 separate techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Pico Rivera allowing us to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher removal in Pico Rivera?
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method by itself. This includes the professional version of gopher poison 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 Pico Rivera property. We have seen with these poisons slightly better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Pico Rivera gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they do not intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 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 lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Pico Rivera property are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow pest control companies serving Pico Rivera, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many methods for gopher control in the past few years. In Pico Rivera, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Pico Rivera people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. 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 best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Pico Rivera property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
