Our typical method for gopher trapping Jurupa Valley, 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 bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher trapping Jurupa Valley begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Jurupa Valley location. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping Jurupa Valley. 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 offspring in the nest. Utilizing two types of methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use gopher poison]?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers in Jurupa Valley, Ca but few of them work well. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good results for gopher extermination it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait on your Jurupa Valley property. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill 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 consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Jurupa Valley. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming 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 do not allow a pest control company serving Jurupa Valley tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years in Jurupa Valley. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Reason for using carbon monoxide?
We know people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication in Jurupa Valley.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned 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 Jurupa Valley, Ca.
