Our typical approach for gopher removal for Yorba Linda, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Yorba Linda dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher removal starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Yorba Linda home. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher removal in Yorba Linda. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Using two seperate control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher removal in Yorba Linda, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
While many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher removal in Yorba Linda it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Yorba Linda property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground 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 he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Yorba Linda tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Yorba Linda. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different 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 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 exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned 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 Yorba Linda for burrowing animals.
