Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for children, pets like dogs and cats and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of for Placentia.
The typical method for gopher control for Placentia, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Placentia dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher control starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Placentia yard. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in Placentia. 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 babies in the burrow. Utilizing two seperate control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher control in Placentia, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Placentia it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they do not intend to consume 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 consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Placentia property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
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 poison. 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 own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Placentia try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Placentia, CA?

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem solved right away in Placentia. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched 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 Placentia for burrowing animals.
