The typical method for home gopher service in Pico Rivera and commercial gopher removal in Pico Rivera is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this our Pico Rivera gopher service begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your location. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Pico Rivera gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. With 2 different techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Pico Rivera allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher service in Pico Rivera?
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Pico Rivera property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Pico Rivera gopher service project. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they do not intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal 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 into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Pico Rivera property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Pico Rivera, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Pico Rivera, 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. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Pico Rivera people want their gopher problem solved quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Pico Rivera 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 regulations for everyone’s safety.
