Our typical method for gopher service Canyon Lake, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our gopher service Canyon Lake starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Canyon Lake location. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service Canyon Lake. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. With 2 types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Why not not use gopher poison]?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers in Canyon Lake, Ca but few of them work well. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having good control for gopher extermination it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison on your Canyon Lake property. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Canyon Lake. The tunnels on your landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. 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 own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Canyon Lake try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years in Canyon Lake. 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 pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Reason for using carbon monoxide?
We know customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly. 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 best chances of full gopher extermination in Canyon Lake.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies 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 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 Canyon Lake, Ca.
