Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Pasadena, CA.
Our normal method for residential gopher service in Pasadena and commercial gopher removal in Pasadena is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this Rodent Guys Pasadena gopher service starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your property. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying 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 Pasadena gopher service. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. Utilizing two different methods such as these gives great gopher control in Pasadena allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher service in Pasadena?
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Pasadena property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Pasadena gopher service project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Pasadena property are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The other 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Pasadena, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Pasadena, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Pasadena people want their gopher problem fixed right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Pasadena 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 your safety.
