Our typical method for gopher service for Seal Beach, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal 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 Seal Beach pets and other animals including predatory birds is great.
This is why our gopher service starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Seal Beach property. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service in Seal Beach. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. Utilizing two types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher service in Seal Beach, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Seal Beach it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their tunnels when they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Seal Beach landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground 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 he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Seal Beach tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Seal Beach. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best 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 around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Seal Beach for burrowing animals.
