Our normal method for gopher removal for San Juan Capistrano, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. 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 San Juan Capistrano dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this our gopher removal starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your San Juan Capistrano property. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers 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 retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal in San Juan Capistrano. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the nest. Using 2 different techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher removal in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in San Juan Capistrano it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your San Juan Capistrano landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt 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 poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving San Juan Capistrano try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in San Juan Capistrano. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 offspring in the burrow. After the machines are turned 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 San Juan Capistrano for burrowing animals.
