Our normal approach for gopher extermination for Tustin, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Tustin pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.

This is why Rodent Guys gopher extermination begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Tustin location. The traps are inserted 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 depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination in Tustin. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 types of control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher extermination in Tustin, CA.

What reason do we not not use gopher poison?

While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but still not high enough.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Tustin it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Tustin landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.

The other 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Tustin try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use traps for removing gophers in Tustin, CA?

We have played with many ways 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 extremely well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have solved the issue.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved right away in Tustin. Since 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 requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Tustin for burrowing animals.
