The normal approach for gopher eradication for La Habra, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. 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 low and the danger to your La Habra pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.

Because of this our gopher eradication begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your La Habra yard. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will  let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication in La Habra. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using two different control techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher eradication in La Habra, CA.

What reason do we not not use gopher poison?

Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher than that but still not high enough.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in La Habra it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your La Habra landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.

The last 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving La Habra tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use traps for removing gophers in La Habra, CA?

We have used many ways for gopher control for our customers over the 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 pull out a gopher that you have removed the problem.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in La Habra. When we follow our trapping program 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 extermination.

The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 La Habra for burrowing animals.
