Our normal approach for home gopher service in Hermosa Beach and commercial gopher removal in Hermosa Beach is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
This is why Rodent Guys Hermosa Beach gopher service begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your yard. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Hermosa Beach gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the burrow. Using two separate control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Hermosa Beach allowing us to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher service in Hermosa Beach?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Hermosa Beach property. We have noticed with these poisons a little better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Hermosa Beach gopher service project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if 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.
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 technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Hermosa Beach yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be 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 poison and don’t let a pest control company serving Hermosa Beach, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Hermosa Beach, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Hermosa Beach customers want their gopher problem solved quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
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 deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate 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 Hermosa Beach 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.
