The normal approach for gopher trapping for Fillmore, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process 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 concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Fillmore dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
This is why our gopher trapping Fillmore starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Fillmore property. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their positions. We typically will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Fillmore. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. Utilizing two differnt control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Fillmore, CA.
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better than that but still not high enough in Fillmore.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Fillmore it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not intend 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 eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Fillmore property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Fillmore try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers?
Here at our pest company 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 control in Fillmore is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate?
We know customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Fillmore. When we follow our trapping program 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 eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Fillmore, CA.
