The normal approach for gopher trapping for Garden Grove, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Garden Grove dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is high.

Based on this Rodent Guys gopher trapping begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Garden Grove location. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will  allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping in Garden Grove. 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 babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 different control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Garden Grove, CA.

Why do you no not use gopher poison?

While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better than that but not too low for repeatable results.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Garden Grove it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.

The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Garden Grove lawn are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.

The last 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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Garden Grove try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Garden Grove, CA?

Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher control in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Garden Grove. 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 extermination.

The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Garden Grove for burrowing animals.
