Gopher Control Orange

Orange 60-day Standard Guarantee for Gopher and Moles

Rodent Guys gopher eradication service protects your Orange landscape from the extensive damage from gophers and moles. Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around for Orange.

Our typical method for gopher control for Orange, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Orange dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.

Because of this our gopher control starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Orange home. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will  allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Orange. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. Utilizing two seperate control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher control in Orange, CA.

Why do you no not use gopher poison?

Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but not up to our standards.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Orange it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they do not intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Orange lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.

The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming 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 is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Orange tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Orange, CA?

We have played with many ways for gopher extermination in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Orange. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.

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 deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Orange for burrowing animals.
