The typical method for gopher service Lake Elsinore, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher service Lake Elsinore begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Lake Elsinore yard. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service Lake Elsinore. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. Using two types of techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use gopher poison]?
Serveral poison baits are sold for controlling gophers in Lake Elsinore, Ca but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but still not high enough.
Not only does gopher bait not having good control for gopher extermination it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait on your Lake Elsinore property. 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 burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Lake Elsinore. The tunnels on your lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The other common 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 he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Lake Elsinore try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
