Rodent Guys gopher eradication service for Temple City gopher removal protects landscaping from the devastating damage caused from gophers. Our residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Temple City, CA.
Our normal method for residential gopher removal in Temple City and commercial gopher removal in Temple City is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys 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 pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our Temple City gopher removal starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your yard. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Temple City gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the nest. Utilizing two types of methods such as these offers excellent gopher control in Temple City allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher removal in Temple City?
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method alone. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Temple City property. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Temple City gopher removal project. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows when they don’t intend 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 animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Temple City yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Temple City, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Temple City, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Temple City people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. When 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 eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Temple City 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.
