The normal approach for home gopher trapping in Culver City and commercial gopher removal in Culver City is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
This is why our Culver City gopher trapping starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your property. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow 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 all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Culver City gopher trapping. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Using 2 different control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Culver City allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher trapping in Culver City?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Culver City property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Culver City gopher trapping project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Culver City yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Culver City, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Culver City, 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. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Culver City customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Culver City 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 laws for everyone’s safety.
