We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around servicing Signal Hill, CA.
The typical approach for home gopher trapping in Signal Hill and commercial gopher removal in Signal Hill is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Because of this our Signal Hill gopher trapping begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent evidence on your property. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Signal Hill gopher trapping. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 separate methods such as these gives great gopher control in Signal Hill allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher trapping in Signal Hill?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a sole control. Even the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Signal Hill property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having great control it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Signal Hill gopher trapping project. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they do not intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Signal Hill lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The other 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 bait 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 Signal Hill, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In Signal Hill, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely 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 Signal Hill customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 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 thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Signal Hill property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
