The normal method for gopher service for Fullerton, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Fullerton pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this our gopher service begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Fullerton yard. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service in Fullerton. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the burrow. Using 2 seperate control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher service in Fullerton, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Fullerton it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Fullerton yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The lethal bait 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 poiosn and don’t allow a pest control company serving Fullerton tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in Fullerton. 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 highest 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. After 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 Fullerton for burrowing animals.
