The normal approach for gopher service for Buena Park, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Buena Park pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher service begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Buena Park property. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service in Buena Park. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. With two seperate methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher service in Buena Park, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional 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. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Buena Park it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Buena Park landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt 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 ate the bait. The 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 Buena Park try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Buena Park, CA?

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Buena Park. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched 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 Buena Park for burrowing animals.
