The typical method for gopher trapping for Ladera Ranch, CA home 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 rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Ladera Ranch dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our gopher trapping starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Ladera Ranch location. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with small flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping in Ladera Ranch. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Using two types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Ladera Ranch, CA.
Why do you no not use gopher poison?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Ladera Ranch it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Ladera Ranch yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig 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 consumed the poison. The poison 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow a pest control company serving Ladera Ranch tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Ladera Ranch. 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 highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are turned 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 Ladera Ranch for burrowing animals.
