Our typical approach for gopher extermination for Yorba Linda, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Yorba Linda dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our gopher extermination begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Yorba Linda location. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination in Yorba Linda. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. Using 2 different methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher extermination in Yorba Linda, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination in Yorba Linda it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they do not intend 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 wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Yorba Linda property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The other 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Yorba Linda tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Yorba Linda. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique 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 requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are turned 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 Yorba Linda for burrowing animals.
