Our residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals. We approach things a bit different for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of for Rossmoor.
The normal method for gopher trapping for Rossmoor, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Rossmoor pets and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Based on this our gopher trapping starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Rossmoor home. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying 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 Rossmoor. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the burrow. Using 2 types of techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher trapping in Rossmoor, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Rossmoor it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait. 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 tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Rossmoor yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil 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 he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Rossmoor tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Rossmoor, CA?

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in Rossmoor. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Rossmoor for burrowing animals.
