Our normal method for gopher control for Huntington Beach, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Huntington Beach pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher control begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Huntington Beach property. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Huntington Beach. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. With 2 different methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher control in Huntington Beach, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Huntington Beach it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait. 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 tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Huntington Beach property are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The other 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Huntington Beach try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies 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 Huntington Beach for burrowing animals.
