Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company around for San Juan Capistrano.
The typical approach for gopher eradication for San Juan Capistrano, CA residential 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 poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your San Juan Capistrano pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher eradication begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your San Juan Capistrano property. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication in San Juan Capistrano. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. With two different methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher eradication in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are sold 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 bit better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in San Juan Capistrano it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). 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 quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your San Juan Capistrano property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The other 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving San Juan Capistrano tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in San Juan Capistrano. 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 requires 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 San Juan Capistrano for burrowing animals.
