Our typical approach for gopher removal for Huntington Beach, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Huntington Beach pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this our gopher removal starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Huntington Beach property. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal in Huntington Beach. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. Utilizing 2 seperate techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher removal in Huntington Beach, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Huntington Beach it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Huntington Beach lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The last 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 it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Huntington Beach try to tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved right away in Huntington Beach. When 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 about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are turned 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 Huntington Beach for burrowing animals.
