The typical approach for gopher trapping for Placentia, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. 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 Placentia pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.

Based on this Rodent Guys gopher trapping begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Placentia property. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will  let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When we arrive to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Placentia. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Using 2 seperate methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee for gopher trapping in Placentia, CA.

Why do you no not use gopher poison?

There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little better but not up to our standards.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Placentia it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly bait. 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 tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Placentia property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.

The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. 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 own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving Placentia try to tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use traps for removing gophers in Placentia, CA?

Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher control for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

We know customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Placentia. 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 eradication.

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 thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched 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 Placentia for burrowing animals.
