Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of for Laguna Woods.
Our normal approach for gopher eradication for Laguna Woods, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Laguna Woods dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher eradication begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Laguna Woods home. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication in Laguna Woods. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. With 2 types of techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Laguna Woods, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Laguna Woods it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Laguna Woods property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Laguna Woods tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed right away in Laguna Woods. Since 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Laguna Woods for burrowing animals.
