Our normal method for gopher service for Yorba Linda, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait.

Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher service in Yorba Linda. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the burrow.

Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher than that but still not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher service in Yorba Linda it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal bait. 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 down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Yorba Linda lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt 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 bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Yorba Linda try to tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher problem solved right away in Yorba Linda. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. 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 Yorba Linda for burrowing animals.
