The typical approach for gopher eradication for Cypress, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Cypress dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our gopher eradication begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Cypress location. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication in Cypress. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. With 2 different methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Cypress, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Cypress it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Cypress lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt 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 ate the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Cypress tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem fixed right away in Cypress. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different 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 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are turned 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 Cypress for burrowing animals.
