The normal approach for gopher trapping San Jacinto, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Based on this our gopher trapping San Jacinto begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your San Jacinto yard. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically 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 removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping San Jacinto. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Utilizing two differnt control techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
The reason to not use gopher poison]?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers in San Jacinto, Ca but few of them work effectively. Even the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be mearly fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait on your San Jacinto property. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be 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 multiple feet down in San Jacinto. The tunnels on your landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving San Jacinto try to tell you it is safe – its not.
