Rodent Guys gopher eradication service for La Verne gopher service protects landscapes from the extensive damage caused from gophers. Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing La Verne, CA.
The normal approach for home gopher service in La Verne and commercial gopher removal in La Verne is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our La Verne gopher service begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your yard. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our La Verne gopher service. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two different control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in La Verne allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher service in La Verne?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your La Verne property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit 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 a child for your La Verne 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 available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your La Verne landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
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 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let pest control companies serving La Verne, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. In La Verne, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know La Verne people want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your La Verne property. People and pets above ground 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.
