Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing El Segundo, CA.
The normal method for home gopher trapping in El Segundo and commercial gopher removal in El Segundo is a combination of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous 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 pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
This is why our El Segundo gopher trapping starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your home. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our El Segundo gopher trapping. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 separate methods such as these offers great gopher control in El Segundo allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher trapping in El Segundo?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a sole control. Even the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your El Segundo property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your El Segundo gopher trapping project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your El Segundo property are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The other common 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 it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving El Segundo, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In El Segundo, 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 pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows El Segundo people want their gopher problem solved right away. Since 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 highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your El Segundo 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 your safety.
