Culver City gopher service
Rodent Guys gopher eradication service protects your landscape from the vast damage caused from gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone we are aware of.
The normal method for gopher service for Culver City, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Culver City dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher service begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Culver City property. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service. 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. Using two types of methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher service in Culver City, CA.
What reason do we use gopher poison for gopher service in Culver City?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be mearly fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Culver City it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows if they do not plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Culver City yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.
The (other|last} way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming 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 it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving Culver City try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Culver City, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers in Culver City, CA?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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.
