The normal method for gopher trapping for Newbury Park, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Newbury Park pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our gopher trapping Newbury Park begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Newbury Park location. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their positions. We normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Newbury Park. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. Using two differnt methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Newbury Park, CA.
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but still not high enough in Newbury Park.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Newbury Park it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will eject 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 (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Newbury Park landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit 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 consumed the poison. 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Newbury Park tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers?
Here at our pest company we have played with many ways for gopher control in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control in Newbury Park is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about 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 infestation fixed quickly in Newbury Park. 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 highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned 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 in Newbury Park, CA.
