Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company around for Laguna Beach.

The typical approach for gopher eradication for Laguna Beach, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Laguna Beach dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.

This is why Rodent Guys gopher eradication begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Laguna Beach yard. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will  allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication in Laguna Beach. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. Utilizing two types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Laguna Beach, CA.

Why not not use gopher poison?

Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not up to our standards.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Laguna Beach it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Laguna Beach yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.

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 poison. The bait 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 don’t allow pest control companies serving Laguna Beach tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Laguna Beach, CA?

Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Laguna Beach. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Laguna Beach for burrowing animals.
