Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for children, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company around servicing Maywood, CA.
Our normal approach for home gopher trapping in Maywood and commercial gopher removal in Maywood is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Instead our Maywood gopher trapping begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your home. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Maywood gopher trapping. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Utilizing two different techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Maywood allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use poison for gopher trapping in Maywood?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method by itself. Even the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Maywood property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children for your Maywood gopher trapping project. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows when they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Maywood lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Maywood, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In Maywood, 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 pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Maywood people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Maywood 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 your safety.
