The normal approach for gopher service for Rossmoor, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison.

Why do you no not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method 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 Rossmoor it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 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 lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Rossmoor yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The other 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 he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Rossmoor 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 Rossmoor. When we follow our trapping program 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 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 young in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Rossmoor for burrowing animals.
