Our normal method for gopher control for Garden Grove, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Garden Grove dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher control begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Garden Grove home. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Garden Grove. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Using 2 types of control techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher control in Garden Grove, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Garden Grove it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to eat 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. 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 into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Garden Grove yard are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow a pest control company serving Garden Grove try to tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved right away in Garden Grove. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Garden Grove for burrowing animals.
