Our normal approach for gopher control for Moorpark, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Moorpark dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our gopher control Moorpark starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Moorpark yard. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. We normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Moorpark. 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 burrow including the offspring in the burrow. With 2 types of techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher control in Moorpark, CA.
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results in Moorpark.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Moorpark it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will push 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 exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Moorpark yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The (other|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 bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Moorpark tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers?
We have used many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal in Moorpark is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate?
We know people want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Moorpark. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 in Moorpark, CA.
