The typical method for gopher extermination for Seal Beach, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Seal Beach pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher extermination starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Seal Beach location. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 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 removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination in Seal Beach. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Utilizing two different methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher extermination in Seal Beach, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Seal Beach it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Seal Beach property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
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 bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow a pest control company serving Seal Beach try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Seal Beach, CA?

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Seal Beach. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched 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 Seal Beach for burrowing animals.
