The typical method for gopher removal Moreno Valley, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with 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 poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our gopher removal Moreno Valley begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Moreno Valley location. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal Moreno Valley. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. Using two seperate control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use gopher poison]?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers in Moreno Valley, Ca but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having good results for gopher extermination it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait on your Moreno Valley property. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Moreno Valley. The tunnels on your lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
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 it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving Moreno Valley try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher eradication for our customers over the years in Moreno Valley. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Reason for using carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication in Moreno Valley.
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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Moreno Valley, Ca.
