The normal method for residential gopher service in Paramount and commercial gopher removal in Paramount is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison 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 great.
This is why our Paramount gopher service begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your property. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Paramount gopher service. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Using 2 different techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Paramount allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher service in Paramount?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Paramount property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Paramount gopher service project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Paramount property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Paramount, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Paramount, 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 solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Paramount customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method 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 30 seconds and will exterminate 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 Paramount property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
