Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of for Trabuco Canyon.
The typical method for gopher control for Trabuco Canyon, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Trabuco Canyon dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our gopher control begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Trabuco Canyon yard. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in Trabuco Canyon. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. With 2 types of methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher control in Trabuco Canyon, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Trabuco Canyon it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Trabuco Canyon landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The last 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 it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Trabuco Canyon tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Trabuco Canyon. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable 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 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Trabuco Canyon for burrowing animals.
