Our normal approach for gopher eradication for Newport Beach, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Newport Beach pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.

This is why our gopher eradication begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Newport Beach property. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will  let the gopher 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 pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication in Newport Beach. 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 tunnel including any young in the nest. Using two different methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Newport Beach, CA.

The reason to not not use gopher poison?

Serveral poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but still not too low for repeatable results.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Newport Beach it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.

The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Newport Beach lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate 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 consumed the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Newport Beach tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use traps for removing gophers in Newport Beach, CA?

Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher extermination 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 wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Newport Beach. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.

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 lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After 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 Newport Beach for burrowing animals.
