Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone we are aware of servicing Santa Fe Springs, CA.
Our typical approach for home gopher trapping in Santa Fe Springs and commercial gopher removal in Santa Fe Springs is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Because of this our Santa Fe Springs gopher trapping begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your property. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the trap sets sit for 1-7 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 pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Santa Fe Springs gopher trapping. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. With 2 types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control in Santa Fe Springs allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher trapping in Santa Fe Springs?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a method by itself. This includes the professional version of gopher bait available 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 technique of gopher control for your Santa Fe Springs property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your Santa Fe Springs gopher trapping project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Santa Fe Springs landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow pest control companies serving Santa Fe Springs, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. In Santa Fe Springs, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Santa Fe Springs people want their gopher problem fixed right away. When we follow our trapping 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 extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Santa Fe Springs property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
