The typical method for residential gopher service in Avalon and commercial gopher removal in Avalon is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys Avalon gopher service begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your location. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let 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 Avalon gopher service. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Utilizing two different techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in Avalon allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher service in Avalon?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a sole control. Even the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Avalon property. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Avalon gopher service project. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows if they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Avalon property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let a pest control company serving Avalon, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many methods for gopher control in the past few years. In Avalon, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Avalon 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 separate technique 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Avalon 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 regulations for everyone’s safety.
