Our normal method for home gopher trapping in Arcadia and commercial gopher removal in Arcadia is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Because of this our Arcadia gopher trapping begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your location. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Arcadia gopher trapping. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. Using 2 different methods such as these offers great gopher control in Arcadia allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher trapping in Arcadia?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a method by itself. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Arcadia property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Arcadia gopher trapping project. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Arcadia yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground 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 bait. 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 highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Arcadia, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Arcadia, 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 solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Arcadia people want their gopher problem fixed right away. When we follow our trapping 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 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Arcadia 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.
