Our normal approach for gopher service for San Juan Capistrano, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your San Juan Capistrano dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.

These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

With two seperate control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher service in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in San Juan Capistrano it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your San Juan Capistrano landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot 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 ate the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving San Juan Capistrano tell you it is safe – it is not.
