Our typical approach for home gopher service in Cerritos and commercial gopher removal in Cerritos is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our Cerritos gopher service starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your home. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their locations. 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 the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Cerritos 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 young in the burrow. With 2 different control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Cerritos allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher service in Cerritos?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Cerritos property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Cerritos gopher service project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Cerritos landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let a pest control company serving Cerritos, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher control in the past few years. In Cerritos, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Cerritos customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away. When 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 requires 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Cerritos 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 your safety.
