The typical method for gopher extermination for Lake Forest, CA home 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 that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Lake Forest dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our gopher extermination starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Lake Forest yard. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination in Lake Forest. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the burrow. With two different control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher extermination in Lake Forest, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Lake Forest it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Lake Forest landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming 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 do not let pest control companies serving Lake Forest try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in Lake Forest. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Lake Forest for burrowing animals.
