The normal method for home gopher removal in Vernon and commercial gopher removal in Vernon is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Instead our Vernon gopher removal starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent evidence on your property. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Vernon gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. Using two different methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Vernon allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher removal in Vernon?
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method by itself. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Vernon property. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Vernon gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Vernon landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Vernon, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Vernon, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife 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 Vernon customers want their gopher problem solved quickly. When 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 highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Vernon property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
