Our typical method for home gopher trapping in San Dimas and commercial gopher removal in San Dimas is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Instead Rodent Guys San Dimas gopher trapping begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent activity on your property. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending 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 first phase of our San Dimas 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 offspring in the burrow. With 2 separate control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control in San Dimas allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher trapping in San Dimas?
While many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. This includes 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 merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your San Dimas property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your San Dimas gopher trapping project. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend 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 lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your San Dimas lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground 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 consumed the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving San Dimas, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have used many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years. In San Dimas, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows San Dimas customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique 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 deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your San Dimas property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
