The typical method for gopher removal for Orange, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Orange dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher removal starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Orange yard. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come 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 Orange. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Using 2 different techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher removal in Orange, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit better than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Orange it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows if they do not intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Orange yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot 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 bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Orange tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Orange, CA?

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved right away in Orange. When 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 best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety and legal in Orange for burrowing animals.
