The typical method for gopher eradication for Dana Point, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Dana Point pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
Based on this our gopher eradication begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Dana Point property. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication in Dana Point. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the burrow. Using two types of control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Dana Point, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Dana Point it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Dana Point yard are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The other 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Dana Point tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Dana Point, CA?

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Dana Point. When 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 highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Dana Point for burrowing animals.
