The typical method for gopher trapping for Piru, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Piru dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Based on this our gopher trapping Piru starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Piru location. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their positions. We normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping in Piru. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. Utilizing 2 differnt control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Piru, CA.
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but still not too low for repeatable results in Piru.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Piru it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Piru landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The (other|last} 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Piru 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 used many techniques for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control in Piru is it works very well and is pet 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 people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly 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 unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Piru, CA.
