The typical approach for gopher eradication for Westminster, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous 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 Westminster dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher eradication begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Westminster property. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the 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 1st phase of our gopher eradication in Westminster. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. Using 2 seperate methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher eradication in Westminster, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher eradication in Westminster 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 don’t plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Westminster yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground 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 ate the bait. The 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Westminster try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. 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.
