Why not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Trabuco Canyon it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their tunnels if they do not intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal poison. 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 tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Trabuco Canyon property are two to eight inches 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 consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Trabuco Canyon try to tell you it is safe – its not.

The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow.

Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety and legal in Trabuco Canyon for burrowing animals.
