The normal method for home gopher service in Glendale and commercial gopher removal in Glendale is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.
This is why Rodent Guys Glendale gopher service begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your home. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending 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 Glendale gopher service. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. With 2 different control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Glendale allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher service in Glendale?
Several poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Glendale property. We have seen with these poisons a little better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Glendale gopher service project. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Glendale property are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The other common 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 dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Glendale, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Glendale, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Glendale customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. 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 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 around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Glendale property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
