The typical method for residential gopher service in San Gabriel and commercial gopher removal in San Gabriel is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our San Gabriel gopher service starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your property. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking 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 we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our San Gabriel gopher service. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Utilizing two different methods such as these gives excellent gopher control in San Gabriel allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher service in San Gabriel?
Several poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your San Gabriel property. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your San Gabriel gopher service project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your San Gabriel yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. 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 own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let a pest control company serving San Gabriel, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years. In San Gabriel, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal 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.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows San Gabriel customers want their gopher problem solved right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your San Gabriel 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 regulations for your safety.
