The normal method for residential gopher service in Inglewood and commercial gopher removal in Inglewood is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys Inglewood gopher service starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your home. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. 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 all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Inglewood gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the nest. Utilizing two types of techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Inglewood allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher service in Inglewood?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Inglewood property. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Inglewood gopher service project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat 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 eats the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Inglewood lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming 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 he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Inglewood, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Inglewood, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Inglewood people want their gopher infestation solved right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
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 lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Inglewood 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.
