The normal method for gopher service Norco, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
This is why our gopher service Norco begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Norco location. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service Norco. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. With two differnt methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use gopher poison]?
While many poisons are sold for controlling gophers in Norco, Ca but few of them have good control. Even the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Not only does gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal poison on your Norco home. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Norco. The tunnels on your property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The last 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 own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Norco 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 control for our customers over the years in Norco. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away. When we follow our trapping program 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 extermination in Norco.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Norco, Ca.
