Gopher Control needed from gopher mound

Gopher Mound

The typical approach for gopher control Lake Elsinore, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.

This is why our gopher control  Lake Elsinore starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Lake Elsinore yard. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control Lake Elsinore. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. With 2 differnt methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee.


What reason do we not use gopher poison]?

While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers in Lake Elsinore, Ca but few of them work effectively. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but not too low for repeatable results.

Not only does gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait on your Lake Elsinore property. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Lake Elsinore. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.

The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Lake Elsinore tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use traps?

Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years in Lake Elsinore. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.

Why use carbon monoxide?

Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination in Lake Elsinore.

The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 around thirty 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. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety for use in Lake Elsinore, Ca.
