Rodent Guys gopher trapping service for Montebello gopher service protects properties from the extensive damage by gophers. Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Montebello, CA.
The typical method for home gopher service in Montebello and commercial gopher removal in Montebello is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. 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 Rodent Guys Montebello gopher service begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your home. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Montebello gopher service. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. With 2 separate control techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Montebello allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher service in Montebello?
Several poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method by itself. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Montebello property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Montebello gopher service project. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 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 gets into the poison. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Montebello landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming 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 highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Montebello, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Montebello, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Montebello people want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Montebello 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 laws for everyone’s safety.
