Our normal method for gopher control for Saticoy, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Saticoy dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Based on this our gopher control Saticoy begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Saticoy property. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their positions. We typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Saticoy. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Using two types of techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher control in Saticoy, CA.
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but not high enough in Saticoy.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Saticoy it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume 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 into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Saticoy yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The (other|last} common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Saticoy tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers?
We have used many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control in Saticoy 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.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate?
We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Saticoy. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety in Saticoy, CA.
