Rodent Guys gopher eradication service for El Segundo gopher service protects landscapes from the devastating damage from gophers. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around servicing El Segundo, CA.
The typical approach for residential gopher service in El Segundo and commercial gopher removal in El Segundo is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Instead our El Segundo gopher service begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your location. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our El Segundo gopher service. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Using two different methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control in El Segundo allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher service in El Segundo?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. Even the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your El Segundo property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your El Segundo gopher service project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your El Segundo yard are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving El Segundo, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. In El Segundo, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know El Segundo customers want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 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 deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your El Segundo 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 your safety.
