The normal method for gopher control for Fountain Valley, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Fountain Valley dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this our gopher control begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Fountain Valley location. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags 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 all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Fountain Valley. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the burrow. With 2 types of techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher control in Fountain Valley, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Fountain Valley it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Fountain Valley landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The last 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 pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Fountain Valley tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Fountain Valley, CA?

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Fountain Valley. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Fountain Valley for burrowing animals.
