The normal method for gopher removal for Laguna Nigel, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Laguna Nigel dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this our gopher removal starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Laguna Nigel yard. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in Laguna Nigel. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. Using 2 types of techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher removal in Laguna Nigel, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Laguna Nigel it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows if they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Laguna Nigel 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 ate the bait. 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Laguna Nigel tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved quickly in Laguna Nigel. 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 unbreathable environment which only needs 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 offspring in the nest. 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 Laguna Nigel for burrowing animals.
