The normal approach for gopher control San Jacinto, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Instead our gopher control San Jacinto starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your San Jacinto home. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control San Jacinto. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. With 2 seperate techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use gopher poison]?
Serveral poison baits are available for controlling gophers in San Jacinto, Ca but few of them work well. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be mearly fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good results for gopher extermination it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly poison on your San Jacinto home. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another 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 companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in San Jacinto. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait 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 own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving San Jacinto tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years in San Jacinto. 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 customers want their gopher problem solved right away. When we follow our trapping program 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 extermination in San Jacinto.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. 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 regulations for everyone’s safety for use in San Jacinto, Ca.
