Our typical approach for gopher eradication Murrieta, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher eradication Murrieta starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Murrieta location. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication Murrieta. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. Using two types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use gopher poison]?
Serveral poison baits are available for controlling gophers in Murrieta, Ca but few of them work well. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait available 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 little better but still not high enough.
Not only does gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait on your Murrieta home. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Murrieta. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground previously.
The other 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 poison 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 poiosn and do not allow pest control companies serving Murrieta try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher control in the past few years in Murrieta. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Reason for using carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved right away. When 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 best chances of full gopher extermination in Murrieta.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After 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 Murrieta, Ca.
