Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of servicing San Fernando, CA.
Our normal method for home gopher trapping in San Fernando and commercial gopher removal in San Fernando is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this our San Fernando gopher trapping begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your yard. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven 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 pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our San Fernando gopher trapping. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Utilizing 2 types of control techniques such as these gives great gopher control in San Fernando allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher trapping in San Fernando?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your San Fernando property. We have seen with these poisons a little better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your San Fernando gopher trapping project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal poison. 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 burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your San Fernando property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving San Fernando, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher control in the past few years. In San Fernando, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows San Fernando people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole 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 burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your San Fernando 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 everyone’s safety.
