Our typical method for gopher removal for Fullerton, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. 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 concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Fullerton pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our gopher removal starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Fullerton property. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the 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 out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in Fullerton. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the burrow. With two different methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher removal in Fullerton, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Fullerton it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is 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 around 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 pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Fullerton yard are 2-8″ below 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 pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow pest control companies serving Fullerton tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Fullerton, CA?

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Fullerton. Since we follow our trapping 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 unlivable 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 thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are switched 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 Fullerton for burrowing animals.
