Our normal method for gopher trapping for Santa Paula, CA residential 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 poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Santa Paula dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher trapping Santa Paula starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Santa Paula home. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their positions. We typically will allow 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 pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping in Santa Paula. 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 babies in the nest. With two seperate control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Santa Paula, CA.
Serveral poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher but not high enough in Santa Paula.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Santa Paula it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 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 eats the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Santa Paula lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt 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 bait. 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 own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Santa Paula try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers?
We have used many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control in Santa Paula is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Santa Paula. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique 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 about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Santa Paula, CA.
