The normal approach for gopher eradication for Buena Park, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Buena Park pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our gopher eradication starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Buena Park location. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication in Buena Park. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of control techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Buena Park, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Buena Park it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Buena Park property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Buena Park try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Buena Park, CA?

The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Buena Park. Since we follow our trapping 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 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 offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Buena Park for burrowing animals.
