The typical approach for residential gopher trapping in La Verne and commercial gopher removal in La Verne is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys La Verne gopher trapping starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent evidence on your yard. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our La Verne gopher trapping. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the burrow. Utilizing 2 separate control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in La Verne allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher trapping in La Verne?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your La Verne property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child for your La Verne gopher trapping project. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 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 poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your La Verne lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving La Verne, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years. In La Verne, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows La Verne people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your La Verne property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
