Rodent Guys gopher control service for Hidden Hills gopher service protects landscapes from the extensive damage from gophers. Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Hidden Hills, CA.
The normal method for residential gopher service in Hidden Hills and commercial gopher removal in Hidden Hills is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this Rodent Guys Hidden Hills gopher service begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your home. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Hidden Hills gopher service. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. Utilizing two separate control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Hidden Hills allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher service in Hidden Hills?
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Hidden Hills property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Hidden Hills gopher service project. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Hidden Hills yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Hidden Hills, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher control in the past few years. In Hidden Hills, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Hidden Hills people want their gopher problem solved quickly. 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 best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Hidden Hills 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 regulations for everyone’s safety.
