The typical method for residential gopher removal in Pomona and commercial gopher removal in Pomona is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys Pomona gopher removal starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your yard. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Pomona gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. With 2 separate techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Pomona allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher removal in Pomona?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Pomona property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Pomona gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Pomona property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last common 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Pomona, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Pomona, 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 remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Pomona people want their gopher infestation solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only requires 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 young in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Pomona 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.
