Rodent Guys gopher extermination service protects your Yorba Linda landscaping from the vast damage from gophers and moles. Rodent Guys residential service for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, pets like dogs and cats and other wildlife. Our approach for gopher control with the best guarantee of any company we are aware of for Yorba Linda.
Our normal method for gopher trapping for Yorba Linda, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous 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 Yorba Linda dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is elevated.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher trapping starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Yorba Linda home. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Yorba Linda. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including any babies in the burrow. Utilizing two different techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher trapping in Yorba Linda, CA.
The reason to not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Yorba Linda it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Yorba Linda lawn are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving Yorba Linda tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Yorba Linda. When 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 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 around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Yorba Linda for burrowing animals.
