Our normal approach for gopher service for Tustin, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Tustin pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.

This is why Rodent Guys gopher service starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Tustin yard. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will  allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service in Tustin. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the nest. Using two types of techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher service in Tustin, CA.

What reason do we not not use gopher poison?

There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes 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. We have noticed with these poisons a little better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Tustin it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to eat 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 deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Tustin property are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot 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 is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Tustin tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use traps for removing gophers in Tustin, CA?

We have played with many ways for gopher control for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

We know customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Tustin. Since 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 extermination.

The carbon monoxide floods 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 about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Tustin for burrowing animals.
