The normal method for gopher control for Tustin, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Tustin dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher control starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Tustin property. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in Tustin. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. Using 2 types of techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher control in Tustin, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait 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. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Tustin it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Tustin landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Tustin try to tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Tustin. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire 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 turned off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Tustin for burrowing animals.
