Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Monterey Park, CA.
The normal method for residential gopher service in Monterey Park and commercial gopher removal in Monterey Park is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our Monterey Park gopher service starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your home. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing 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 Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Monterey Park gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any young in the burrow. Using 2 separate control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Monterey Park allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher service in Monterey Park?
Several poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Monterey Park property. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your Monterey Park gopher service project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 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 consumes the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Monterey Park landscape are two to eight inches 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 get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let pest control companies serving Monterey Park, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Monterey Park, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Monterey Park people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Monterey Park property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
