Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around servicing Torrance, CA.
The typical approach for home gopher removal in Torrance and commercial gopher removal in Torrance is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison 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 dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
This is why our Torrance gopher removal begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Torrance gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. With two different methods such as these offers great gopher control in Torrance allowing us to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher removal in Torrance?
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a method by itself. Even the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Torrance property. We have noticed with these poisons a little better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Torrance gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Torrance landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Torrance, 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 methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Torrance, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Torrance customers want their gopher problem solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 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 babies in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Torrance property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
