Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control San Jacinto with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of.
The normal approach for gopher removal San Jacinto, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this our gopher removal San Jacinto starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your San Jacinto property. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal San Jacinto. 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 burrow including any babies in the burrow. Utilizing two seperate techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use gopher poison]?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers in San Jacinto, Ca but few of them have good control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control for gopher extermination it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal poison on your San Jacinto home. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in San Jacinto. The tunnels on your lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil 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 poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving San Jacinto try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher control 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 very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination in San Jacinto.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies 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 gasses 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.
