Our typical approach for gopher extermination for Fullerton, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Fullerton pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our gopher extermination starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Fullerton home. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher 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 the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination in Fullerton. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using two types of techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher extermination in Fullerton, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Fullerton it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows if they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal 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 down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Fullerton landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Fullerton tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Fullerton, CA?

The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Fullerton. When 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Fullerton for burrowing animals.
