The normal method for gopher eradication Moreno Valley, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher eradication Moreno Valley begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Moreno Valley yard. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication Moreno Valley. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the burrow. Using two seperate methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use gopher poison]?
Serveral poisons are sold for controlling gophers in Moreno Valley, Ca but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be mearly fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having good control for gopher extermination it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait on your Moreno Valley property. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty 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 poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Moreno Valley. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot 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 ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet 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 allow pest control companies serving Moreno Valley try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher control in the past few years in Moreno Valley. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination in Moreno Valley.
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 thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety for use in Moreno Valley, Ca.
