The normal method for gopher service for Laguna Hills, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Laguna Hills dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is high.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher service begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Laguna Hills home. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the 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 the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service in Laguna Hills. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Utilizing 2 seperate techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher service in Laguna Hills, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Laguna Hills it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow 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 Laguna Hills yard are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Laguna Hills try to 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 problem fixed right away in Laguna Hills. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. 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 Laguna Hills for burrowing animals.
