The normal method for gopher service for Lake Forest, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Lake Forest pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
Based on this Rodent Guys gopher service starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Lake Forest yard. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags displaying 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 removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher service in Lake Forest. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. With two different control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher service in Lake Forest, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Lake Forest it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Lake Forest property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The other 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 lethal bait 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 poiosn and don’t allow a pest control company serving Lake Forest tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Lake Forest. When we follow our trapping 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 extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young 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 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 Lake Forest for burrowing animals.
