Our typical method for gopher removal for San Clemente, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your San Clemente dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.

Instead Rodent Guys gopher removal starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your San Clemente home. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will  allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in San Clemente. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. Utilizing two types of control techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher removal in San Clemente, CA.

The reason to not not use gopher poison?

While many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in San Clemente it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.

The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into 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 multiple feet down. The tunnels on your San Clemente lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.

The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The poison 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 poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving San Clemente try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in San Clemente, CA?

Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher eradication 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 pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved quickly in San Clemente. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.

The carbon monoxide floods 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring 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 San Clemente for burrowing animals.
