Our typical approach for gopher service for Laguna Nigel, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Laguna Nigel dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.

Because of this our gopher service begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Laguna Nigel location. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will  allow 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 removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service in Laguna Nigel. 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 control techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher service in Laguna Nigel, CA.

The reason to not not use gopher poison?

Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. 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 Laguna Nigel it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their tunnels when they do not plan 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 lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.

The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Laguna Nigel property are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.

The last 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow pest control companies serving Laguna Nigel try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use traps for removing gophers in Laguna Nigel, CA?

Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques 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 wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

We know people want their gopher problem fixed right away in Laguna Nigel. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.

The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are turned 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 Nigel for burrowing animals.
