The typical method for gopher removal for Garden Grove, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Garden Grove pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Instead our gopher removal starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Garden Grove yard. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers showing 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 Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal in Garden Grove. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Utilizing 2 different control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher removal in Garden Grove, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Garden Grove it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume 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 tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Garden Grove lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Garden Grove tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved quickly in Garden Grove. 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 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 lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Garden Grove for burrowing animals.
