The reason to not use gopher poison]?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers in Moreno Valley, Ca but few of them have good control. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little better but not high enough.
Not only does gopher poison not having good results for gopher extermination it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they do not intend to consume 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 consume the deadly poison on your Moreno Valley property. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Moreno Valley. The tunnels on your lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Moreno Valley tell you it is safe – it is not.
