The normal approach for home gopher service in La Puente and commercial gopher removal in La Puente is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Based on this Rodent Guys La Puente gopher service starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your location. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our La Puente gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Using 2 types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in La Puente allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher service in La Puente?
Several poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method by itself. Even the commercial 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 method of gopher control for your La Puente property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your La Puente gopher service project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they do not intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your La Puente lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground 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 bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving La Puente, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In La Puente, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows La Puente customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your La Puente property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
