The typical method for gopher trapping for Huntington Beach, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Huntington Beach pets and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
This is why our gopher trapping begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Huntington Beach home. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Huntington Beach. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. With 2 seperate techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher trapping in Huntington Beach, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Huntington Beach it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Huntington Beach landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The 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 highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let pest control companies serving Huntington Beach tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
We know customers want their gopher problem solved quickly in Huntington Beach. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate 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 exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety and legal in Huntington Beach for burrowing animals.
