Our typical method for home gopher trapping in Rolling Hills and commercial gopher removal in Rolling Hills is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Instead our Rolling Hills gopher trapping starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your home. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Rolling Hills 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 other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. With 2 separate control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in Rolling Hills allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher trapping in Rolling Hills?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method alone. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Rolling Hills property. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children for your Rolling Hills gopher trapping project. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Rolling Hills property are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The other common 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 dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let a pest control company serving Rolling Hills, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Rolling Hills, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know Rolling Hills people want their gopher problem fixed right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different 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 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 deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Rolling Hills 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.
