The normal method for gopher eradication for Placentia, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Placentia pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Instead our gopher eradication begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Placentia location. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. 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 come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher eradication in Placentia. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. Utilizing two seperate techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in Placentia, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Placentia it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow 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 Placentia property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The last common 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving Placentia try to tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Placentia. Since we follow our trapping 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 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 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring 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 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 Placentia for burrowing animals.
