Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Manhattan Beach, CA.
The normal approach for residential gopher trapping in Manhattan Beach and commercial gopher removal in Manhattan Beach is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys Manhattan Beach gopher trapping begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your yard. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Manhattan Beach gopher trapping. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. Utilizing two different methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Manhattan Beach allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher trapping in Manhattan Beach?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good efficiency as a method alone. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Manhattan Beach property. We have seen with these poisons a bit better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Manhattan Beach gopher trapping project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Manhattan Beach yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The last 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 lethal bait 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 do not allow a pest control company serving Manhattan Beach, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher control in the past few years. In Manhattan Beach, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Manhattan Beach customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
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 lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Manhattan Beach property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
