The typical method for gopher extermination for Brea, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Brea dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.

This is why Rodent Guys gopher extermination starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Brea property. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking 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 Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination in Brea. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including any babies in the nest. Utilizing two seperate control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher extermination in Brea, CA.

Why not not use gopher poison?

There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but not up to our standards.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Brea it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend 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 lethal poison. 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 multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Brea lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig 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 eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving Brea try to tell you it is safe – its not.

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

Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher eradication 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 pet safe. No doubt about when you remove 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 right away in Brea. 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies 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. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety and legal in Brea for burrowing animals.
