Our normal approach for home gopher trapping in Bellflower and commercial gopher removal in Bellflower is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys Bellflower gopher trapping begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your property. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Bellflower gopher trapping. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the burrow. Utilizing 2 separate techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in Bellflower allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher trapping in Bellflower?
Several poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method by itself. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Bellflower property. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your Bellflower gopher trapping project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Bellflower lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Bellflower, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Bellflower, 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. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Bellflower people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping program 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 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 thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Bellflower property. People and pets above ground 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.
