The typical approach for gopher service for Dana Point, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Dana Point dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our gopher service starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Dana Point location. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service in Dana Point. 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 offspring in the nest. With 2 seperate methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher service in Dana Point, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the commercial strength 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 method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Dana Point it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows if they do not intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. 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 burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Dana Point landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait 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 don’t let pest control companies serving Dana Point try to tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Dana Point. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
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 around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched 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 Dana Point for burrowing animals.
