The normal method for gopher removal for Tustin, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Tustin pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.

Based on this Rodent Guys gopher removal starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Tustin yard. These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will  let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal in Tustin. 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 babies in the burrow. Utilizing two seperate methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher removal in Tustin, CA.

The reason to not not use gopher poison?

While many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better than that but not high enough.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Tustin it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.

The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Tustin lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.

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 poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Tustin try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

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

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 removal is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Tustin. Since 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 highest chances of full gopher extermination.

The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Tustin for burrowing animals.
