Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Artesia, CA.
Our typical method for residential gopher service in Artesia and commercial gopher removal in Artesia is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. 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 Artesia gopher service starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your location. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for one to seven 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 Artesia gopher service. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. With 2 types of techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Artesia allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher service in Artesia?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method alone. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Artesia property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Artesia gopher service project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they don’t 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 bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Artesia landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow pest control companies serving Artesia, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Artesia, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Artesia customers want their gopher problem solved right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Artesia property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
