The typical method for gopher service for Orange, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison.

Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the 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 from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service in Orange. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher service in Orange, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Orange it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they don’t 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 wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty 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 lethal bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Orange lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving Orange try to tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in Orange. Since 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 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 about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Orange for burrowing animals.
