Our typical approach for residential gopher trapping in Pasadena and commercial gopher removal in Pasadena is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Based on this Rodent Guys Pasadena gopher trapping starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your property. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Pasadena 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 young in the burrow. With 2 separate methods such as these gives excellent gopher control in Pasadena allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher trapping in Pasadena?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. This includes 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 merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Pasadena property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Pasadena gopher trapping project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they do not 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 wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 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 bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Pasadena lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let a pest control company serving Pasadena, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Pasadena, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Pasadena people 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 different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 babies in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Pasadena property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety.
