Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company around for Rossmoor.
The typical method for gopher control for Rossmoor, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Rossmoor dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead our gopher control starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Rossmoor yard. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come 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 Rossmoor. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Utilizing 2 seperate techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher control in Rossmoor, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Rossmoor it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel 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 Rossmoor yard are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed 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 Rossmoor try to tell you it is safe – its not.

The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.
What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Rossmoor. When 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 thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Rossmoor for burrowing animals.
