The typical method for home gopher trapping in La Habra Heights and commercial gopher removal in La Habra Heights is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
This is why Rodent Guys La Habra Heights gopher trapping starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your home. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our La Habra Heights gopher trapping. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. With 2 types of control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in La Habra Heights allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher trapping in La Habra Heights?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method by itself. Even the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your La Habra Heights property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children for your La Habra Heights gopher trapping project. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your La Habra Heights lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming 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 own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let a pest control company serving La Habra Heights, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have used many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. In La Habra Heights, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know La Habra Heights customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique 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 requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate 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 La Habra Heights 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.
