The typical method for gopher extermination for Laguna Hills, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Laguna Hills pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher extermination starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Laguna Hills yard. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination in Laguna Hills. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the nest. Using two types of techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher extermination in Laguna Hills, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Laguna Hills it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Laguna Hills lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil 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 poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Laguna Hills tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Laguna Hills, CA?

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know people want their gopher infestation solved right away in Laguna Hills. 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 highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Laguna Hills for burrowing animals.
