Our typical approach for gopher control for Piru, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Piru pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Based on this our gopher control Piru starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Piru home. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. We normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Piru. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Using two types of techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher control in Piru, CA.
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be mearly fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher than that but still not high enough in Piru.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Piru it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Piru lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The (other|last} 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 pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Piru tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers?
We have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal in Piru is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate?
We know people want their gopher infestation solved right away in Piru. When 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 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 deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are switched 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 in Piru, CA.
