Our normal method for gopher removal Riverside, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Based on this our gopher removal Riverside begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Riverside home. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal Riverside. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 types of techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Why not not use gopher poison]?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers in Riverside, Ca but few of them have good control. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison on your Riverside home. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Riverside. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The lethal 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Riverside tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many ways for gopher control in the past few years in Riverside. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved quickly. Since 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 best chances of full gopher extermination in Riverside.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched 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.
