The typical method for home gopher service in Compton and commercial gopher removal in Compton is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys Compton gopher service starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your yard. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Compton gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. With 2 types of methods such as these offers great gopher control in Compton allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher service in Compton?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Compton property. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Compton gopher service project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Compton property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The last common 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 pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let pest control companies serving Compton, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Compton, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Compton people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Compton 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.
