The normal approach for gopher removal for Seal Beach, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Seal Beach dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher removal begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Seal Beach property. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in Seal Beach. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. With 2 different control techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher removal in Seal Beach, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Seal Beach it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they do not plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and 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 is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Seal Beach property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Seal Beach tell you it is safe – its not.

The carbon monoxide floods 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 lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel.
