Our normal approach for gopher trapping for Orange, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Orange dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher trapping begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Orange property. Most traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Orange. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. With two different methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Orange, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
While many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Orange it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the poison. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Orange lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The other common 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 it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Orange tell you it is safe – its not.

The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved quickly in Orange. When 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 entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once 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 Orange for burrowing animals.
