Rodent Guys residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife.

The typical method for gopher eradication for Orange, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Orange dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.

Based on this Rodent Guys gopher eradication begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Orange home. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will  let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication in Orange. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. With 2 seperate methods such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Orange, CA.

What reason do we not not use gopher poison?

There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Orange it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly 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 eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Orange property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.

The other 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 he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Orange try to tell you it is safe – its not.

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

We have played with many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you pull out 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 problem fixed quickly in Orange. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.

The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are switched 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 Orange for burrowing animals.
