The typical approach for gopher control for Buena Park, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping 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 low and the danger to your Buena Park dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher control starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Buena Park home. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in Buena Park. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Using two different techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher control in Buena Park, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Buena Park it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they don’t 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 deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Buena Park property are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming 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 it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving Buena Park tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Buena Park, CA?

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Buena Park. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 and legal in Buena Park for burrowing animals.
