The normal approach for gopher removal for Rossmoor, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Rossmoor pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this our gopher removal begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Rossmoor location. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal in Rossmoor. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow. Using two types of methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher removal in Rossmoor, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Rossmoor it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Rossmoor property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The last common 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 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 bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Rossmoor try to tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Rossmoor. When 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 thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. 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 Rossmoor for burrowing animals.
