Our normal approach for gopher eradication Norco, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Based on this our gopher eradication Norco begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Norco yard. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive 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 Norco. 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. With two seperate control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Why not not use gopher poison]?
Serveral poisons are sold for controlling gophers in Norco, Ca but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but still not high enough.
Not only does gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly poison on your Norco property. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Norco. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit 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 ate the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Norco try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher eradication in the past few years in Norco. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Reason for using 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 different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication in Norco.
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 about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Norco, Ca.
