The normal method for residential gopher trapping in Commerce and commercial gopher removal in Commerce is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys Commerce gopher trapping begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your property. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Commerce gopher trapping. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. With two separate techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Commerce allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher trapping in Commerce?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait 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 Commerce property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Commerce gopher trapping project. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Commerce property are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Commerce, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Commerce, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Commerce people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Commerce 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 laws for everyone’s safety.
