Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing South Pasadena, CA.
The normal method for residential gopher service in South Pasadena and commercial gopher removal in South 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. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this Rodent Guys South Pasadena gopher service begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your yard. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our South Pasadena gopher service. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. With 2 different methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control in South Pasadena allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher service in South Pasadena?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your South Pasadena property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your South Pasadena gopher service project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your South Pasadena landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let pest control companies serving South Pasadena, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. In South Pasadena, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know South Pasadena customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique 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 requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your South 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 regulations for everyone’s safety.
