Rodent Guys gopher control service for Glendale gopher trapping protects landscaping from the vast damage by gophers. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Glendale, CA.
The typical approach for residential gopher trapping in Glendale and commercial gopher removal in Glendale is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Based on this our Glendale gopher trapping begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your home. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Glendale gopher trapping. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. With two types of control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Glendale allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher trapping in Glendale?
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a method by itself. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Glendale property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Glendale gopher trapping project. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Glendale property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow a pest control company serving Glendale, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Glendale, 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 solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Glendale customers want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
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 deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Glendale 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.
