Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Rolling Hills Estates, CA.
Our typical approach for residential gopher removal in Rolling Hills Estates and commercial gopher removal in Rolling Hills Estates is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys Rolling Hills Estates gopher removal starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your property. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Rolling Hills Estates gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Using two separate methods such as these gives great gopher control in Rolling Hills Estates allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher removal in Rolling Hills Estates?
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method alone. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Rolling Hills Estates property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Rolling Hills Estates gopher removal project. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Rolling Hills Estates yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground 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 dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Rolling Hills Estates, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Rolling Hills Estates, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Rolling Hills Estates customers want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Rolling Hills Estates 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.
