Rodent Guys gopher eradication service for Hermosa Beach gopher trapping protects landscaping from the extensive damage by gophers. Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Hermosa Beach, CA.
The typical approach for residential gopher trapping in Hermosa Beach and commercial gopher removal in Hermosa Beach is a combination of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our Hermosa Beach gopher trapping begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your location. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 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 pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Hermosa Beach gopher trapping. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Using 2 types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Hermosa Beach allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher trapping in Hermosa Beach?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Hermosa Beach property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Hermosa Beach gopher trapping project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Hermosa Beach property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Hermosa Beach, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Hermosa Beach, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Hermosa Beach people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. 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 requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Hermosa Beach 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.
