Rodent Guys gopher extermination service for Rolling Hills Estates gopher trapping protects landscapes from the vast damage by gophers. Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing Rolling Hills Estates, CA.
The typical approach for home gopher trapping in Rolling Hills Estates and commercial gopher removal in Rolling Hills Estates is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.
This is why our Rolling Hills Estates gopher trapping starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your location. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Rolling Hills Estates gopher trapping. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Using two separate methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control in Rolling Hills Estates allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher trapping in Rolling Hills Estates?
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Rolling Hills Estates property. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Rolling Hills Estates gopher trapping project. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Rolling Hills Estates lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison 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 is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Rolling Hills Estates, 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 Rolling Hills Estates, 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 Rolling Hills Estates customers want their gopher infestation fixed 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 highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 about 30 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 Rolling Hills Estates 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 regulations for everyone’s safety.
