Gopher Control Corona Gopher Removal Now in Good Hands with Rodent Guys Gopher Extermination

Gopher season kicks off in March for Corona and by April it is in full force. Rodent Guys Gopher Removal Service says to expect an increase in population of gophers this year. The anticipation of a gopher population explosion is caused by new regulations restricting the use of the efficient chemicals previously used by certified pros.

The recent laws are double trouble because the most effective chemical has been restricted and the 2nd most effective is no longer available. Fumitoxin is no longer allowed for use on homes. This poison comes in dry tabs that when placed in the ground and react with water, will release phosphine gas. This deadly gas is extremely toxic and a very effective chemical.

The federal ban has banned the use of Fumitoxin for any home and for commercial and agricultural uses it is illegal for use within 100 feet of any structure. This poison is allowed at golf courses, cemeteries, or athletic fields; but, this poison cannot be used within one hundred feet of any structure, including pump houses, bathrooms, or neighboring property buildings even unoccupied structures like dog houses.

Pest control operators did have another poison similar to homeowner’s options but much more effective. The poison was strychnine which is obtainable by homeowners at 0.5% strength. Previously, a licensed operator could obtain 1.8% which was more effective. Because of a shortage of strychnine this is no longer available. Now even licensed professionals can only obtain hardware store strength poison which has limited effects.

Rodent Guys states the gopher problem is getting worse. The less efficient poisons are creating a problem for exterminators to gain control of burrowing pests on properties. The obtainable poisons are not gaining the control levels and the gopher populations are increasing. Many pest control companies have stopped offering gopher control because they cannot keep customers happy under the new laws.

Rodent Guys says they have had to alter their techniques all together and seldom use poisons at all. The techniques now include carbon monoxide gas and traps. Owner of Rodent Guys, Nick Nielsen, says he likes trapping because outside of Fumitoxin it is the most effective method. Carbon Monoxide gas is also used in their new techniques which increases the effectiveness and helps to eliminate babies in the burrow too.

Rodent Guys predicts they will be among the few gopher service companies out there because they strive to continue to update their methodology and evolve with the changing laws.
