Ladera Ranch 60-day Standard Guarantee for Gopher and Moles
Rodent Guys gopher trapping service protects your Ladera Ranch landscaping from the extensive damage by gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of anyone around for Ladera Ranch.
The normal approach for gopher service for Ladera Ranch, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Ladera Ranch dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher service begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Ladera Ranch property. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service in Ladera Ranch. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. Using two types of techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher service in Ladera Ranch, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
While many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Ladera Ranch it is also quite dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their burrows if they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Ladera Ranch lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Ladera Ranch tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Ladera Ranch, CA?

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Ladera Ranch. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different 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 deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Ladera Ranch for burrowing animals.
