The typical method for residential gopher removal in Rolling Hills and commercial gopher removal in Rolling Hills 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 bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys Rolling Hills gopher removal begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your property. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Rolling Hills gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 separate techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Rolling Hills allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher removal in Rolling Hills?
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Rolling Hills property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Rolling Hills gopher removal project. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other 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 companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Rolling Hills landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let pest control companies serving Rolling Hills, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Rolling Hills, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Rolling Hills customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Rolling Hills 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.
