The normal method for gopher extermination San Jacinto, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher extermination San Jacinto starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your San Jacinto yard. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination San Jacinto. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. Using 2 seperate methods such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
The reason to not use gopher poison]?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers in San Jacinto, Ca but few of them work well. Even the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having good results for gopher extermination it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait on your San Jacinto home. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in San Jacinto. The tunnels on your landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The last 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 dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving San Jacinto tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher eradication for our customers over the years in San Jacinto. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. When 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 highest chances of full gopher eradication in San Jacinto.
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 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After 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 San Jacinto, Ca.
