Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of for Anaheim.
The typical approach for gopher eradication for Anaheim, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Anaheim dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our gopher eradication begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Anaheim property. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication in Anaheim. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Using 2 types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Anaheim, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Anaheim it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of 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 wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Anaheim property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
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 poison. The bait 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 bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Anaheim tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Anaheim. When 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 best chances of full gopher eradication.
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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Anaheim for burrowing animals.
