Our typical method for residential gopher service in Burbank and commercial gopher removal in Burbank is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Instead Rodent Guys Burbank gopher service begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your home. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers 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 Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Burbank gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. With 2 separate control techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Burbank allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher service in Burbank?
Several poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. 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 technique of gopher control for your Burbank property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Burbank gopher service project. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows if they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Burbank lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
The other 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not allow a pest control company serving Burbank, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Burbank, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely 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 Burbank customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Burbank property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
