Our typical approach for gopher trapping for Villa Park, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Villa Park pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher trapping starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Villa Park yard. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher 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 removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Villa Park. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow. Using two types of techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee for gopher trapping in Villa Park, CA.
Why not not use gopher poison?
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to 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 little better than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Villa Park it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume 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 tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Villa Park property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Villa Park try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers in Villa Park, CA?

The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Villa Park. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment 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 unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned 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 Villa Park for burrowing animals.
