Rodent Guys gopher trapping service for Bellflower gopher service protects homes from the devastating damage caused from gophers. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company around servicing Bellflower, CA.
Our typical approach for residential gopher service in Bellflower and commercial gopher removal in Bellflower is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys Bellflower gopher service begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your yard. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Bellflower gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in Bellflower allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher service in Bellflower?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Bellflower property. We have noticed with these poisons a little better than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Bellflower gopher service project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when 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 would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Bellflower landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Bellflower, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Bellflower, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Bellflower people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 UN-breathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Bellflower property. Above ground people and pets 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.
