Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher control with the longest guarantee of any company we are aware of for Tustin.

Our typical approach for gopher trapping for Tustin, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Tustin dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.

Because of this Rodent Guys gopher trapping starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Tustin home. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will  let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Tustin. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. With two seperate methods such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher trapping in Tustin, CA.

What reason do we not not use gopher poison?

Serveral poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher but not high enough.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Tustin it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). 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 poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.

The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Tustin lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt already.

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 poison 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Tustin tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Tustin, CA?

We have played with many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?

Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem fixed right away in Tustin. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.

The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Tustin for burrowing animals.
