Chino, CA (PRWEB) May 06, 2013
Gopher season starts in March in Chino and by April it is in full swing. Rodent Guys Gopher Control Company is expecting a large population of gophers this year. The anticipation of a gopher population increase is because of new laws restricting using the effective chemicals previously purchased by pest professionals.
The new regulations are even worse because the most effective poison has been banned and the 2nd best is no longer available. Fumitoxin is no longer permitted for residential use. This chemical 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 residence and for commercial and agricultural applications it cannot be used within 100 feet of any structure. Fumitoxin is allowed at golf courses, cemeteries, or athletic fields; however, no application of this poison is allowed within one hundred feet of any structure, including pump houses, bathrooms, or neighboring property buildings even unoccupied structures like dog houses.
Pest control professionals used to have another poison similar to homeowner’s options but much stronger. The poison was strychnine which is available to homeowners at 0.5% strength. Previously, a licensed operator could obtain 1.8% which worked much better. Because of a shortage of strychnine this is no longer available. Now even licensed professionals can only get hardware store strength poison which has low effectiveness.
Rodent Guys claims the gopher situation is getting worse. The lower strength poisons are creating a problem for exterminators to gain control of burrowing pests on properties. The available 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 regulations.
Rodent Guys says they were forced to alter their methods all together and seldom use poisons at all. The techniques now involve carbon monoxide gas and traps. Owner of Rodent Guys, Nick Nielsen, says he prefers traps because outside of Fumitoxin it is the most effective method. Carbon Monoxide gas is utilized in their new techniques which increases the level of control and helps to eliminate young in the nest as well.
Rodent Guys thinks they will be one of the few gopher removal companies to be around because they continually evolve their methodology to comply with the changing regulations and still achieve high control levels.
