Our typical approach for gopher service for Cypress, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Cypress dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our gopher service begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Cypress yard. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service in Cypress. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. Utilizing 2 different methods such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher service in Cypress, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Cypress it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 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 several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Cypress lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Cypress tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Cypress, CA?

The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have solved the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher problem solved right away in Cypress. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 about 30 seconds and will eliminate 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 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 Cypress for burrowing animals.
