The normal approach for gopher eradication Riverside, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher eradication Riverside begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Riverside property. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication Riverside. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Utilizing 2 differnt methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use gopher poison]?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers in Riverside, Ca but few of them have good control. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good results for gopher extermination it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait on your Riverside 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 bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Riverside. The tunnels on your lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Riverside try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years in Riverside. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since 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 best chances of full gopher extermination in Riverside.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Riverside, Ca.
