Our typical method for gopher extermination Riverside, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our gopher extermination Riverside begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Riverside property. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination Riverside. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Using 2 seperate methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use gopher poison]?
Serveral poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers in Riverside, Ca but few of them work well. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to 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 technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison on your Riverside property. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Riverside. The tunnels on your lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil 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 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 let a pest control company serving Riverside tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years in Riverside. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know people want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination in Riverside.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring 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 Riverside, Ca.
