Rodent Guys gopher removal service for Signal Hill gopher service protects landscapes from the extensive damage from gophers. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Signal Hill, CA.
Our typical method for residential gopher service in Signal Hill and commercial gopher removal in Signal Hill is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of 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.
This is why our Signal Hill gopher service begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your property. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Signal Hill gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. Using 2 different methods such as these offers great gopher control in Signal Hill allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher service in Signal Hill?
Several poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method alone. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Signal Hill property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Signal Hill gopher service project. At times gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. 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 tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Signal Hill lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot 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 consumed the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let a pest control company serving Signal Hill, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Signal Hill, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Signal Hill people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Signal Hill property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
