The typical approach for gopher eradication for Garden Grove, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Garden Grove pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.

This is why Rodent Guys gopher eradication begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Garden Grove location. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will  allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication in Garden Grove. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Utilizing two seperate methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher eradication in Garden Grove, CA.

What reason do we not not use gopher poison?

While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little better but not too low for repeatable results.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Garden Grove it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Garden Grove lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.

The last common 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Garden Grove try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Garden Grove, CA?

We have used many techniques for gopher control in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

We know people want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Garden Grove. When 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 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. 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 Garden Grove for burrowing animals.
