Our normal approach for gopher service for Fountain Valley, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Fountain Valley dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher service begins by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Fountain Valley home. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service in Fountain Valley. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the burrow. Utilizing two types of methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher service in Fountain Valley, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Fountain Valley it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Fountain Valley yard are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
The other common 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow pest control companies serving Fountain Valley tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Fountain Valley. Since 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 extermination.
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 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Fountain Valley for burrowing animals.
