Our typical approach for gopher removal for Villa Park, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Villa Park pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Instead our gopher removal begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Villa Park home. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal in Villa Park. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. With 2 seperate control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher removal in Villa Park, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Villa Park it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Villa Park landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot 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 consumed the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Villa Park try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Villa Park, CA?

The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt 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 right away in Villa Park. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring 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. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety and legal in Villa Park for burrowing animals.
