The typical approach for gopher removal for Ladera Ranch, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Ladera Ranch pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.

Based on this our gopher removal starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Ladera Ranch location. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their positions. 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 removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal in Ladera Ranch. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Utilizing 2 seperate control techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher removal in Ladera Ranch, CA.

Why not not use gopher poison?

There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but still not high enough.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Ladera Ranch it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Ladera Ranch lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.

The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. 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 own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Ladera Ranch tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Ladera Ranch, CA?

Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher control for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved right away in Ladera Ranch. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.

The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. 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 Ladera Ranch for burrowing animals.
