Our typical method for gopher trapping Wildomar, 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 rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Instead our gopher trapping Wildomar starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Wildomar location. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags 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 arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping Wildomar. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 differnt methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.
Why not not use gopher poison]?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers in Wildomar, Ca but few of them have good effeciency. Even 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. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but not up to our standards.
Not only does gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal bait on your Wildomar property. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Wildomar. The tunnels on your lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
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 bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Wildomar 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 Wildomar. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping 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 extermination in Wildomar.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 babies in the burrow. 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 Wildomar, Ca.
