The typical method for residential gopher removal in San Gabriel and commercial gopher removal in San Gabriel is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
This is why our San Gabriel gopher removal begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your property. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our San Gabriel gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. Utilizing two types of methods such as these offers great gopher control in San Gabriel allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher removal in San Gabriel?
Several poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your San Gabriel property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your San Gabriel gopher removal project. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. 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 burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your San Gabriel property are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The other 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving San Gabriel, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. In San Gabriel, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know San Gabriel people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly 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 San Gabriel property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
