Rodent Guys residential service for gophers utilizes no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other animals. We use unique and safe approaches for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around for Garden Grove.

The typical method for gopher service for Garden Grove, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Garden Grove pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.

This is why Rodent Guys gopher service starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Garden Grove location. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will  allow the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service in Garden Grove. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Utilizing two types of techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher service in Garden Grove, CA.

The reason to not not use gopher poison?

There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher but still not up to our standards.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Garden Grove it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they do not intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.

The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Garden Grove landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.

The last common 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 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 do not let pest control companies serving Garden Grove tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use traps for removing gophers in Garden Grove, CA?

We have used many ways for gopher eradication in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed right away in Garden Grove. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique 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 requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are turned 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 Garden Grove for burrowing animals.
