Our normal method for residential gopher trapping in Monterey Park and commercial gopher removal in Monterey Park is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys Monterey Park gopher trapping begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your yard. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our Monterey Park gopher trapping. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing two different techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Monterey Park allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher trapping in Monterey Park?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Monterey Park property. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Monterey Park gopher trapping project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into 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 multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Monterey Park lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let pest control companies serving Monterey Park, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years. In Monterey Park, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Monterey Park customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. When we follow our trapping 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 eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs 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 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 Monterey Park 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 everyone’s safety.
