The normal approach for home gopher service in Long Beach and commercial gopher removal in Long Beach is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys Long Beach gopher service begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your home. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Long Beach gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Utilizing 2 different methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Long Beach allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher service in Long Beach?
Several poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Long Beach property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Long Beach gopher service project. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when 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 (children, dogs, cats and 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 burrow going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Long Beach landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate 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 own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Long Beach, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Long Beach, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely 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 Long Beach customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Long Beach 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.
