The typical method for residential gopher service in Maywood and commercial gopher removal in Maywood is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Based on this Rodent Guys Maywood gopher service begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent evidence on your yard. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Maywood gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of methods such as these gives excellent gopher control in Maywood allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher service in Maywood?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method by itself. Even the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Maywood property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children for your Maywood gopher service project. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Maywood property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by eating 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 is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Maywood, 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 Maywood, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Maywood customers want their gopher infestation fixed 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 highest 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 young in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Maywood property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
