The normal method for gopher trapping for San Juan Capistrano, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of 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. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your San Juan Capistrano pets and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Based on this our gopher trapping starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your San Juan Capistrano yard. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping in San Juan Capistrano. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. Utilizing two types of techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher trapping in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the professional strength of gopher poison sold to 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. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in San Juan Capistrano it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they do not plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your San Juan Capistrano lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog 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 San Juan Capistrano try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

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 babies in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety and legal in San Juan Capistrano for burrowing animals.
