Rodent Guys residential service for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other wildlife. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the longest guarantee of anyone around for Laguna Beach.
The typical approach for gopher trapping for Laguna 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 poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Laguna Beach dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why our gopher trapping starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Laguna Beach property. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping in Laguna Beach. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the nest. Using 2 types of control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Laguna Beach, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Laguna Beach it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty 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 lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Laguna Beach yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal 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 highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Laguna Beach try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Laguna Beach, CA?

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed quickly in Laguna Beach. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method 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 fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Laguna Beach for burrowing animals.
