Our normal approach for home gopher service in Arcadia and commercial gopher removal in Arcadia is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
This is why Rodent Guys Arcadia gopher service begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your location. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Arcadia gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. With 2 different control techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Arcadia allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher service in Arcadia?
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. Even the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Arcadia property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Arcadia gopher service project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly poison. 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 into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Arcadia property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison 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 he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving Arcadia, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Arcadia, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Arcadia people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique 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 around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Arcadia 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.
