Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing South Pasadena, CA.
Our typical approach for home gopher removal in South Pasadena and commercial gopher removal in South Pasadena is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Based on this our South Pasadena gopher removal begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. 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 out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our South Pasadena 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 burrow including any babies in the burrow. Using two different techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in South Pasadena allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher removal in South Pasadena?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your South Pasadena property. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher 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 South Pasadena gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal 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 gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your South Pasadena property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving South Pasadena, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In South Pasadena, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know South Pasadena people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
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 about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your South Pasadena property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
