The typical method for residential gopher service in Torrance and commercial gopher removal in Torrance is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Instead Rodent Guys Torrance gopher service begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent evidence on your yard. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Torrance 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 tunnel including any young in the nest. With two types of techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Torrance allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher service in Torrance?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Torrance property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Torrance gopher service project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they don’t 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 wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Torrance property are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Torrance, CA try to 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 extermination in the past few years. In Torrance, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Torrance people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since 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 highest 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 entire 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. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Torrance 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 your safety.
