Our typical approach for gopher control for Laguna Beach, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Laguna Beach dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
Instead our gopher control begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Laguna Beach yard. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying 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 first phase of our gopher control in Laguna Beach. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 different control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher control in Laguna Beach, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Laguna Beach it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Laguna Beach lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The other 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Laguna Beach tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher problem solved right away in Laguna Beach. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 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. 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 Laguna Beach for burrowing animals.
