The typical method for home gopher removal in Redondo Beach and commercial gopher removal in Redondo Beach is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys Redondo Beach gopher removal begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Redondo Beach gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Redondo Beach allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher removal in Redondo Beach?
Several poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method by itself. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Redondo Beach property. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Redondo Beach gopher removal project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Redondo Beach property are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow a pest control company serving Redondo Beach, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Redondo Beach, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Redondo Beach people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping program 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 extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Redondo Beach 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.
