Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals.

Our normal approach for gopher control for La Habra, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your La Habra dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher control starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your La Habra property. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in La Habra. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. Using two different control techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher control in La Habra, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in La Habra it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your La Habra property are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving La Habra tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in La Habra, CA?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem solved quickly in La Habra. When we follow our trapping program 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety and legal in La Habra for burrowing animals.
