Our typical method for gopher service for La Palma, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your La Palma pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher service starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your La Palma property. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any young in the nest. With two different control techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher service in La Palma, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in La Palma it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) 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 down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your La Palma landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving La Palma tell you it is safe – it is not.

We know people want their gopher infestation solved quickly in La Palma. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
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 thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 La Palma for burrowing animals.
