I am worried about a gopher dying on the surface and being eaten by a non-target animal.
Our preference is to first use the Burrow RX and live traps to solve your gopher issue. On occassion seed bait may be chosen by the client as part of their solution for their property. Our experience at Peregrine is that less than 2% of all gopher programs we complete result in carcasses on the surface. We intentionally return approximately 48 – 72 hours later, when we ensure that no gopher carcasses are on the surface, maintaining a safe and effective result for the client.
What happens if my family pet eats the seed bait?
There are many products on the market that are poisons and are regulated for exterminating a variety of different pests. These products, if consumed by, or exposed to a non-target animal can be harmful. In structural pest control, we are always managing risk. The goal is always to eliminate a specific pest without harming any other non-target animal. This isn’t always an easy task. It starts with educating the client about managing family pets and small children. It includes, at the time of service, talking with the client about service choices — the pros and cons of each treatment option. It also includes following up to ensure a safe and effective solution has been provided. If a non-target animal such as a family pet is exposed to seed bait or any other chemical, it can be harmful or fatal. It is important to read the label and follow the label directions. If you are unsure about a product, ask for the right advice from the store where you purchased the product from or, better still, ask your Peregrine pest control service technician.
